Please note: this workshop has limited space, and pre-registration is required through through this Summit registration link. (Adding this session to "My Sched" on this screen will not register you for the workshop.)


What do you think when you hear the term “diversity”? Are diversity and inclusion the same? Prior to the workshop, think of how you identify and to which cultural groups you belong. 
Have you ever wondered why our thoughts sometimes don't match our actions? Come learn more about implicit bias and how it affects our daily interactions and decision-making, such as in the media, criminal justice, and hiring. We will also discuss microaggressions, microassaults, microinsults, and microinvalidations. In preparation for the workshop, please visit the Project Implicit website at: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/ (under "Social Attitudes," continue as a guest and click "Go."). Complete at least 2 of the implicit association tests (IATs). 
Through a combination of lecture, discussion, video clips, and interactive exercises, workshop attendees will leave with a better understanding and awareness of diversity, inclusion, and implicit bias.
