The Role of Implicit Bias in Microaggressions: An Interactive Workshop
Thursday, September 1, 2022
11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Festival Room, Memorial Union
This interactive talk introduces graduate students to the underlying concepts and language used in the psychological literature to describe implicit or unconscious biases, describes how these processes function as habits of mind, and focuses on how they influence our interactions and can lead to microaggressions. Students will learn effective strategies for minimizing the application of implicit bias and for addressing microaggressions when they commit, witness or experience them. Lunch provided
