This highly interactive workshop will introduce participants to the concept of implicit bias: what it is, how it develops, and its impacts on individuals and organizations. You will come away with a better understanding of your own unconscious biases, and some practical, research based strategies to reduce them. This session will review basics, and will then take a deeper dive into how implicit bias shows up in community development organizations and the communities they serve. There will be time to strategize and practice debiasing interventions and some takeaway tools to share with colleagues and communities.

Participant Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the origins, characteristics, and impacts of implicit bias on individuals, institutions, and systems;

2. Practice application of research-based debiasing strategies;

3. Explore strategies and tools for sharing information with colleagues and communities.
