Implicit bias encompasses the views or stereotypes affecting people’s actions and decisions outside of their conscious awareness. These preferences impact socialization, interpreting unfamiliar information, and decision-making. We all have implicit bias and even if we are not selecting students for scholarships, it is impacting our decision-making processes which could lead to inequitable outcomes for the students we serve. Join Lo Klink to learn about this topic and resources you can tap into to evaluate how to lessen implicit bias in your daily life.

The remaining Fall 2021 Lunch and Learns will take place on the following dates from 12-1pm:

  • November 15
  • December 20

Further details to be announced prior to each session.
