Implicit Bias Training, June 14, 2021

May 23, 2021

On June 14, from 5 to 7 p.m., the Dismantling Racism Committee will sponsor a two hour training session on Implicit Bias. Implicit Biases (also called Unconscious Biases) are the attitudes and stereotypes that we all have that manifest themselves without our being aware of them. Implicit bias training seeks to help us bring those unconscious attitudes to our conscious minds where they can be examined and understood. In this training session, we’ll learn how and why our minds develop biases, and how awareness of these biases can help us counteract their impact.

This online program will be taught by Dr. Sandra Quezeda from the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Dr. Quezeda has taught classes on recognizing unconscious bias to medical professionals as well as the general public.

Space will be limited to 40 participants and registration will close on Friday, June 11th.
