What is Implicit Bias? Learn more at an upcoming session at Health Sciences

Monday, February 24, 2020

Higher Level is a training series designed to empower the Mountaineer Family to take ownership of the role each of us plays in promoting an inclusive campus culture.

The first of this five-session sequence will give an overview of implicit bias and demonstrate how even those with the best of intentions can allow inherent assumptions to cloud their judgement. 

Later sessions will focus on how identity – specifically disability, race/ethnicity, and gender and LGBTQ+ identities – affects attempts to be fair and impartial.

Participants are encouraged to attend all sessions in the sequence.
