Using a combination of research, storytelling, and engaging activities the speakers aim to motivate individuals to create a more inclusive and equitable environment in their institutions. Knowing that shame and blame demotivates participants, instead the speakers will rely on research of how bias leads to distinctive disparities in various sectors, review how the brain gravitates toward biases in the first place, give participants an opportunity to reflect on bias in thier own lives, and then empower them with evidence-based strategies shown to be effective in disrupting the effects of bias on behavior.
Part 2 Objectives:
-Apply evidence-based strategies for addressing implicit bias at the individual and personal levels. -Apply evidence-based strategies for addressing implicit bias at the institutional level. -Identify next steps for implementing strategies for mitigating the impacts of implicit bias in your practice.
