Breaking the Bias Habit®: A Workshop to Promote Gender Equity

a workshop to promote gender equity

Workshop Description

This three-hour workshop introduces faculty to the concepts of unconscious biases and assumptions about gender by treating the application of such biases as a "bad habit." Faculty will uncover their own biases through use of an Implicit Association Test, will discover the underlying concepts and language used in the psychological and social psychological literature to describe such processes, and will be provided with proven strategies for reducing the application of these biases. To view more information about the workshop, see this flyer or contact wiseli@engr.wisc.edu.
