Through My Eyes: The Impact of Implicit Bias

Community Event, Education, General, Social Event, Talks/Lectures
We come from different places and backgrounds. Our life experiences and backgrounds can affect the way we see the world and each other, for better or worse. What is implicit bias, and how does it shape our attitudes and actions towards others? How do stereotypes affect our understanding, actions, and decisions? “Implicit bias” can cause us to have feelings and attitudes about other people based on characteristics such as race, ethnicity, age, and appearance. How can we learn to navigate the world we see “through our eyes,” and the world as seen through the eyes of people different from us?
Come and join the discussion about how implicit bias can lead to a phenomenon known as stereotypes threat. Facilitated by Matthew Whitaker, Ph.D. This event is free and open to the public.

AZ Speaks...The Gila: River of History
