About Understanding and Undoing Implicit Bias

This learning program will teach participants about implicit bias and specific strategies to address it. Implicit bias is the unconscious judgment outside of one’s awareness that can influence decision-making. Failure to recognize and address implicit bias can lead to decision making that denies other people opportunities, which contributes to inequity.
