About the Event
Join us for “Unconscious Bias—Knowing What You Don’t Know” a workshop with Derek Mosley, Director of Marquette Law School’s Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education.
Unconscious bias is a learned stereotype that is automatic, unintentional, deeply ingrained, universal, and able to influence behavior. Unconscious bias seeps into decisions that affect recruitment, retention, hiring, access to healthcare, banking, housing, education, the justice system, providing services, interpersonal interactions, and outcomes in ways that can disadvantage both individuals and groups of people. We all have some form of unconscious bias, and the key is to recognize it and employ techniques to mitigate it.
- Be able to define unconscious bias.
- Learn to assess and measure their unconscious bias.
- Learn the history of unconscious bias in America.
- Learn how, subconsciously, decisions are being made in their minds.
- Learn how unconscious bias affects everyday life.
- Finally, learn ways to mitigate their bias.
There will also be opportunities for conversation and reflection during the program.
Doors open at 6pm with cash bar and light snacks available. Program begins promptly at 6:30pm. Social hour to follow with opportunities to meet other community members and continue the conversation!
