Implicit bias has come to be recognized as a powerful force that not only shapes individual actions but institutional policies and practices as well. We now know implicit bias plays a role in job interviews, hiring, suspensions from school, jury verdicts, sentencing to prison, police shootings, and policies influencing housing, health care, and more.
This session, with leading equity and diversity educator Hugh Vasquez, looks at three primary mechanisms that produce bias: priming, associations, and assumptions which will create an understanding of actions people can take to counteract negative race associations that lead to negative consequences for people of color.
This interactive session uses activities, videos, media images, and provocative discussions to increase understanding of how implicit bias manifests, how it perpetuates, and what people can do to interrupt it with a vision for changing both individuals and systems.
