This webinar will highlight the intersectional nature of bias as a facet of diversity, equity, and inclusion by analyzing the neuro-cognitive science behind unconscious bias, stereotyping, and our primary need to belong. In this session, participants will examine the concept of implicit bias, explore neuroimaging studies that demonstrate decision-making automatically triggers specific regions of the brain responsible for unconscious processing, the rationale for integrating cultural humility into their daily lives, and the several recommendations on how to do so to combat unconscious bias.
