Could you be biased?  Hidden bias and why it matters.
Implicit bias. It’s the hidden thoughts about people that we don’t realize we have. The unconscious tendencies to categorize other people, positively and negatively.
How does hidden bias influence the way we think about race? How can it lead to discrimination and impede access to opportunity?
Join Derrik Anderson, Executive Director of Race Matters for Juvenile Justice, as we learn how implicit bias impacts our work to achieve racial justice and discover ways to minimize its effects.
At RMJJ, Anderson works to build the capacity of organizations to understand and eliminate racial inequities and disparities within our community. REGISTER BELOW.
