Event description: 

There will be a workshop on “Breaking the Habit of Bias” Thursday, January 28 from 9:00-12:00 pm by Dr. Patricia Devine, psychology professor and director of the Prejudice and Intergroup Relations Lab at the Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison. The workshop raises awareness of why bias persists despite an individual’s rejection of prejudiced ideas. Tools to reduce implicit bias are then presented with evidence for their effectiveness. Please register in order to attend. Because space is limited, preference will be given to faculty and postdoctoral fellows. This event is sponsored by YSM Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, SWIM, WFF, and MORE.
