Full course description

Many of our communities and organizations are seeking to understand how stigma and discrimination interacts within our system and personal behaviors, and distorts individual and public health outcomes. This has created a focus on Implicit Bias and Diversity and Inclusion trainings, however the research shows us that spotting unconscious bias in your own mind, in the moment, is almost impossible. So how do we change our biases, and our behaviors? Join us to explore and challenge implicit bias by working with the architecture of the brain, not against it.
