Recognizing Implicit Bias

Recognizing Implicit Bias is made up of student-centered learning activities that allow attendees to safely understand their own biases with a scientific approach.  The curriculum design avoids an accusatory tone and focuses on objective facts revealed directly to each student by their own in-class discovery.  Students learn in a safe environment with exercises that reveal deep personal preferences (biases) on things that are not at all controversial.  It is a fun way to see things we like based on how we were socialized.  Ultimately, students personally decide how they will apply the knowledge and skills learned that teach them to recognize their own implicit biases and how to mitigate them.
