FRANK Talks: Implicit Bias
We come from different places and backgrounds. Our life experiences and backgrounds can affect the way we see the world and each other, for better or worse. What is implicit bias, and how does it shape our attitudes and actions towards others? How do stereotypes affect our understanding, actions, and decisions?
On Saturday, March 7th, Matthew Whitaker, Ph.D. presents “Through My Eyes: The Impact of Implicit Bias” at 11:00 a.m. at the Main Library. “Implicit bias” can cause us to have feelings and attitudes about other people based on characteristics such as race, ethnicity, age, and appearance. How can we learn to navigate the world we see “through our eyes,” and the world as seen through the eyes of people different from us? Join the discussion about how implicit bias can lead to a phenomenon known as stereotypes threat. There is no charge to attend.
The Main Library is located at 2951 S 21st Drive. For more information, call (928) 782-1871.
