Learning Objectives:
  1. Define implicit bias and describe how social structures (personal experience, culture, geography, etc.) create the social forces that result in implicit bias.
  2. Articulate where in the brain implicit bias arises.
  3. Generate a working model of how these different brain functions can result in an ‘opinion’ of something without conscious discernment.

This seminar will explore the neural underpinnings of implicit bias.  Through this mechanistic understanding, this course will invite participants to consider how normative brain function, combined with individual socialization, generates rapid and implicit judgement we discuss as implicit bias.  The goal of this course is to deepen participants' awareness of normative implicit processes.  As individuals develop a greater body sense of these moments of implicit judgement, we can also develop the to make a different choice.  it is the hope of the presenter that participants are courageous enough to continue this dialogue within their social and professional networks to continue to raise awareness surrounding this topic.
