Implicit Bias Advanced Workshop
Overcoming Bias: Individual & Institutional Reforms
This session homes in on concrete strategies that individuals and institutions of higher learning can employ to combat prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination. We will explore the ways in which individuals can change and control their biases, including concrete plans for how to act in unbiased ways and simple rules of thumb for “debiasing” in daily life. We will discuss strategies for responding to discriminatory acts and for fostering dialogue across social and political divides, with an emphasis on the importance of leadership, structures of accountability, and evidence-based analyses of anti-discrimination initiatives.
