Description
The human brain is an amazing, logical computing device. In order to conserve power and time, it organizes data into neat, patterned shortcuts. Why do I have knee-jerk reactions to certain words? Peanut Butter; Marco; Calvin. Unfortunately, these shortcuts, when applied to people and cultures, often results in stereo types, prejudices and discrimination.Participants in this session will explore the concept of unconscious bias, including a self-exploration to recognize their own bias. Most importantly, having identified personal biases, participants will learn strategies to overcome these preset reactions and respond in ways that reflect their conscious beliefs and values.
