DREAM Session 2: Understanding Bias
Much has been said recently about the new science of bias. Are you aware of your hidden bias and how it affects you? Learn about the emerging science of implicit bias, along with strategies and tools to skillfully navigate implicit bias, fundamental attribution error, and confirmation bias. Participants are given opportunities in a safe setting to temporarily put aside their own perspectives in order to listen nonjudgmentally to the experiences of others. With these new tools in hand, participants will learn to identify and minimize the impact of bias, improve interpersonal relationships, and develop practices of respect and community building.
