Empowering People to Break the Bias Habit:
Creating Inclusion and Reducing Bias
Presented by: Patricia G. Devine, PhD and William T. L. Cox, PhD
Date: Saturday, March 2, 2019
Time: 1:30-4:30 pm
Location: Borgwardt Hall, Bethel Lutheran Church, Madison, WI
Caring for Social Justice (C4SJ) will sponsor a unique (and free!) workshop for Bethel and community members on Saturday, March 2. Two UW-Madison social psychologists will help us examine our common human challenge to acknowledge and resist prejudice and stereotyping – specifically our own personal, unrecognized, unintentional bias. Using scientific methodology, Drs. Patricia Devine and William Cox have defined the social, cognitive and cultural mechanisms that perpetuate stereotypes, and interventions that might reduce them in our society.
Understanding others means first understanding ourselves. Unintentional bias lurks within each of us; we can learn to break prejudice habits by learning to recognize the unconscious patterns and beliefs that underlie our attitudes and behaviors. Watch for more information soon on workshop substance and registration for “Empowering People to Break the Bias Habit: Creating Inclusion and Reducing Bias.”
