What Does Implicit Bias Have to Do With Race & Culture?

Date: Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Time: 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Location: Minnesota Literacy Council main office, 700 Raymond Avenue, Suite 180, Saint Paul, MN 55114

Cost: There is no fee for this training, but your tax-deductible donation will support our tutor training program and literacy learners across Minnesota!

Description: Did you know that our brains take in 11 million bits of information per second, but we are only able to consciously process 40 of those bits? As a result, we all have developed certain blind spots that have resulted in our own unconscious, implicit biases. Participants will increase their understanding of how our unconscious biases manifest themselves in our everyday personal and professional lives. We will discuss how we can support one another to be more mindful and aware of our biases to disrupt and interrupt patterns of thinking that impact our ability to be as culturally responsive and inclusive as we can. Participants who complete this workshop will receive a Certificate of Completion from Equity Alliance MN.

To Register: Your $10 or $20 donation will help us do more to share the power of learning! Click "Add" next to one of the two "Register with a donation" options to make a tax-deductible gift. If you do not wish to make a donation, choose "Register for free."
