July 7, 2021 @ 10:00 AM - July 7, 2021 @ 11:30 AM
Blind Spots and Implicit Biases are hidden forces that shape our opinions, attitudes, perceptions, and decisions about others. Although understanding structural inequities is important, understanding the foundations from which these structures are built is paramount. This interactive dynamic and uplifting presentation will address the shortcuts that create our mental blind spots. The operational definition of “equity” will include naming of barriers and identifying source narratives while dismantling them. Confirmation biases and microaggressions will also be discussed.
