Join CEDWC as we host Dr. Jennifer L. Eberhardt, Stanford University professor of psychology and MacArthur Fellow, in a virtual talk focused on understanding the unconscious biases in and around us. As a social psychologist, and the author of the award-winning book Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice that Shapes What We See, Think, and Do, Dr. Eberhardt has devoted her career to addressing social problems that stem from bias. The goal of this event is for you to come away with an understanding of how bias operates in the workplace, your own unconscious biases, what if anything you can do to counter those biases, and the role you will have as worker and manager in a diverse workplace.
