Unconscious Bias: Can We See Our Blind Spots?

Join us as Reggie Jackson, co-founder of Nurturing Diversity Partners, incorporates fun, interactive exercises to explore how our normal 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.
