Toolkit Tuesday: Lunch & Learn: Take the thinking out of thinking: How to mitigate unconscious bias
January 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
When we make decisions based on ‘gut feel’ — which many of us do — we are actually relying on brain processes that lead to unconscious bias. This kind of thinking leads to seriously flawed decisions of which we are wholly unaware. In this Toolkit Tuesday session, Dr. Aaron Barth will explain what unconscious bias is, how it works against us and what tools and tactics are necessary to minimize its influence on our decision making. The end goal? Attendees will not only better understand how bias works, but how to combat it, so they can continue to collaborate in the building of a safe and inclusive community.
