Implicit bias presentation and discussion
Tuesday, May 1, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Diversity and Engagement is hosting a discussion about implicit bias and some of the various implicit bias trainings available through UC. Implicit bias refers to the stereotypes and attitudes people have toward specific populations in their social environment. Biases that are both favorable and unfavorable toward groups are informed by the cultural norms and stigmas of an individual’s social environment, and therefore can be activated unconsciously.
Whether you have completed one — or several — trainings or webinars, your participation is welcomed. Which of the proposed interventions can you apply in your area of impact? In what areas, if any, do you remain skeptical of the implicit bias training movement?
Join UC colleagues for reflection and dialogue about the trainings, and how and whether implicit bias is present in your work. Note that there are recommended activities that we encourage all participants to complete before the discussion; they’re listed on the registration form.
Tae-Sun Kim, Manager of Strategic Diversity Initiatives, UC Office of the President, will facilitate the discussion.
