“Implicit biases come from the culture. I think of them as the thumbprint of the culture on our minds. Human beings have the ability to learn to associate two things together very quickly—that is innate. What we teach ourselves, what we choose to associate is up to us.” – Dr. Mahzarin R. Banaji
In this interactive workshop, participants will deeply examine how race and other social identities influence what drives our beliefs, perceptions, attitudes and behaviors and the ways in which we treat each other. Through short mini lessons, interpersonal activities, and small and large group discussions, we will explore the harmful physical, mental, and emotional effects of how our brains perceive, categorize, and draw inferences about Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
