Rochester Young Professionals + 540WMain Communiversity presents: Intro to Implicit Bias for Young Professionals
Implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. How do we understand implicit bias, unpack it and understand how our backgrounds, upbringing, and society shape how we interact with each other at our jobs, in our classrooms and beyond
This course facilitated by 540 Founder/Executive Director Calvin Eaton will teach you how to understand implicit bias at a personal and social level and leverage this understanding in a way that will allow you to decrease instances of microaggressions and other covert racist tendencies in your workplace and everyday life. This class is geared towards young professionals
