Unconscious Bias
Why We All Have It & What We Can Do About It


Description:

What makes a police officer actually see a gun in the hands of an unarmed man of color? Why did 360 college students evaluate the same academic article more favorably when they believed it was written by a man rather than a woman?

Dr. Jennifer Raymond, a neuroscientist at Stanford University and expert on unconscious bias, especially as it relates to women in the workplace, will explain the science underlying the phenomenon, how such biases are formed, how they affect our behavior, and what we can do to counter them.

There will be a test: Dr. Raymond asks that everyone attending take the free IAT (implicit attitude test) on gender before her presentation. Please go to www.implicit.harvard.edu for details. You will be both surprised and enlightened. Register at: unconsciousbias/brownpapertickets.com
