The Hidden Biases of Good People

Date: December 13, 2023
Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: Online

For us to create healthy relationships, we need to understand our hidden biases so that we might reduce and manage them.

Research has revealed that many Americans show a positive implicit bias toward White Americans vs. African Americans, young vs. old and fit vs. obese. It is possible, however, to implement practices or policies that reduce the likelihood that hidden biases will lead to biased behaviors.

Presenter: Rev. Dr. Bryant T. Marks, Sr., Professor, Morehouse College
