Overcoming Implicit Bias Workshop Presented by Brian Nosek
Overcoming Implicit Bias Workshop Presented by Brian Nosek |
Dr. Brian Nosek, associate professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia and member of the Harvard-based Project Implicit, presents this workshop on recognizing and overcoming implicit bias. Nosek co-founded Project Implicit, an international collaborative network of researchers investigating implicit social cognition Ñ thoughts and feelings outside of conscious awareness and control.
Project Implicit is the product of a team of scientists whose research produced new ways of understanding attitudes, stereotypes and other hidden biases that influence perception, judgment, and action. It translates that academic research into practical applications for addressing diversity, improving decision-making, and increasing the likelihood that practices are aligned with personal and organizational values. Nosek investigates the gap between values and practices Ñ such as when behavior is influenced by factors other than one's intentions and goals.
