Unconscious Bias: Can We See Our Own Blind Spots?
Incorporating fun, interactive exercises, we explore how our brains serve as effective pattern-making machines that unconsciously “prime” us for stereotyping – whether we intend it or not. We examine how the concept of race developed throughout US history and how this history and human tendency towards bias helped create and maintain today’s systemic racial inequities. We explore together how bias affects daily life, and whether something this difficult to perceive can ever be changed.

Building Racial Understanding
How did we become so divided by race?
In this presentation, we take a close look at the forces that have created and maintained racial divisions throughout our nation’s history. We also present some common sense solutions that individuals and institutions can use to move us toward an equitable, diverse society in which all Americans can thrive.
