Intervening for Yourself & Others – Hosted by WIB-National & Unconscious Bias Project)

February 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join WIB-National and the Unconscious Bias Project (UBP) for this custom presentation perfect for WIB members exploring their role in making change. No one wants to be racist, sexist, or prejudiced in general. Yet simply living in the world exposes you to negative stereotypes about various groups of people, which can lead anyone to internalize “unconscious bias.”

In this virtual session together, we will review takeaways from Part 1: Why & How to Tackle Bias in Yourself and dig deeper into how to deal with bias when it comes up in interpersonal relationships and organizations. Please join us even if you were not able to attend part one.
