The Unconscious Mind

Thursday, March 23, 2023 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Facilitator: Kavita Sawh

Research demonstrates that 90% of the time, our decision-making occurs subconsciously. This means that our brain is forming perceptions and making decisions based on our beliefs, learned knowledge, and lived experiences. Unless we make a conscious choice to explore our decision-making process, our conclusions will often include biases and limit our ability to think outside of the box, consider alternative solutions, work collaboratively with diverse populations, and treat people equitably. This workshop provides participants an opportunity to understand the origins of implicit bias and learn strategies to best address it.

Learning Outcomes:

1) Participants will learn the meaning and origins of implicit bias

2) Participants will have an opportunity to explore how implicit bias shows up in their work

or lives

3) Participants will learn strategies to address implicit bias

Framework Category: Diversity Leadership Cultural Competencies: C1, C4, C7, A5, S5
