UNITY STAR: The Power of Implicit Bias (DIV 586)

Thursday, February 10, 2022 9 a.m. to Friday, February 11 at 5 p.m.

Since the launch of Project Implicit in 1998, an online site where an individual may take a Harvard Implicit Association Test, the topic of implicit social cognition or implicit bias has been of great interest. The workshop, The Power of Implicit Bias, as facilitated by UCF’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion introduces this extensive topic through readings and activities that focus on the following:

  • defining implicit bias,
  • providing a brief overview of the history of implicit social cognition,
  • exploring examples of how implicit bias may manifest,
  • learning about potential influences on the development of implicit bias,
  • understanding the Cycle of Socialization and how it helps us to recognize the importance of messaging in the development of our unconscious biases,
  • engaging in a self-exploratory activity designed to identify the social messaging received around aspects of diversity,
  • taking a Harvard Implicit Association Test, and acknowledging, despite the widespread use of the IAT, some of its limitations,
  • discovering interventions and strategies to help address and control our implicit biases, and
  • reminding ourselves to continually value what matters most to us, including our relationships with other people.
