Second Webinar: Harvard Law School Faculty Explains Implicit Bias in Mediation and the strategies to manage them
Are you curious to learn more about implicit bias, but perhaps reluctant to raise the topic with friends or colleagues? Could your workplace or community benefit from heightened awareness of the ways implicit bias affects our relationships and decision-making? Harvard Law School Faculty David and Audrey will help participants have a deeper understanding of the implicit biases we all carry and specific strategies to manage them. They will discuss where biases come from – essentially, a form of mental shortcut that we all engage in – as well as discussion of stereotypes each of us has encountered in the way we are viewed by others, as well as strategies for counteracting bias.
The Webinar will be run in English via Zoom.
