March 16 at 7:00 pm at the Bexley Public Library Auditorium
The City of Bexley, Bexley City Schools, Capital University, and the Bexley Library present a community implicit bias workshop, facilitated by the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at OSU. The Kirwan Institute is an engaged research institute at OSU that works to create a just and inclusive society where all people and communities have the opportunity to succeed.
So what is implicit bias? Throughout life, people are exposed to millions of messages about the world around them— messages that shape their perceptions of people, places, concepts and ideas. Using an engaging and participatory structure, Robin Wright, from the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at The Ohio State University, will discuss how the mind operates, real-world implications, and how to guard against bias. Participants will leave equipped with a deeper understanding of their unconscious mental processing and the ways in which these implicit associations impact their decision-making.
Come to the workshop to learn more about what implicit bias is, how it can impact our interactions, and how we can work to understand and correct for implicit bias. March 16, 7:00 pm, Bexley Public Library Auditorium
