Presented by: LB Hannahs, Ph.D, Inclusion Development Strategist, Tangible Development
Implicit biases are the unconscious positive or negative preferences for individuals or groups shaped through your individual experiences. The information, attitudes, and stereotypes that inform your unconscious dictate how you take the mental shortcuts required to process the abundance of information you receive at any given second. Managing our implicit biases requires work and daily practice to avoid acting on implicit bias. In moments of crisis the skills we use to manage implicit bias can be overrun by anxiety and stress. In this session, participants will learn how stress and anxiety impact our ability to manage our implicit bias. Facilitators from Tangible Development will provide tools and strategies for navigating potential mental traps that could lead to an increase in implicit bias based behaviors and decision-making.
