Implicit Bias Workshop

March 24 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Dr. Bentley L. Gibson, Director of The Bias Adjuster, LLC, is hosting and facilitating a workshop regarding Implicit Bias. Dr. Gibson is currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Georgia Highlands College. Her research focuses on what are known as ​implicit biases, associations that people may be unaware they possess, yet still impact their behaviors.  Her full biography is available here.

At the conclusion of this program, attendees will:

  • Develop an awareness of their own implicit bias (using the latest scientific assessments).
  • Exposure to the science explaining how implicit bias develops from childhood to adulthood.
  • Learn about how factors such as personality and specific social conditions (i.e. stress) impact implicit bias.
  • Understand the ways in which implicit bias can impact the behaviors of well-intentioned individuals, and that few of us are immune to society’s deeply rooted social stereotypes.
  • Understand how to use the observational method to assess prejudice and discrimination that may be associated with implicit bias in their surroundings.
  • Understand how to reduce and control implicit bias and achieve positive intergroup experiences.
  • Have numerous counter-stereotypical examples of negatively stereotyped groups that will counteract negative attitudes
  • Participate in group/team-building exercises that reduce bias and foster positive intergroup interactions.
  • Participate in a training that steers away from causing negative feelings (i.e., guilt, sadness, discouragement, anger, etc.).

This workshop will take place on Tuesday, March 24 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Muhlenberg College in the Great Room at Seegers Union. Registration is available until Tuesday, March 17.
