Registration is closed

SCA is pleased to partner with Right To Be (formerly Hollaback!) to bring our members two educational sessions on mitigating implicit biases and practicing bystander intervention. This is the first of two sessions.

We welcome and encourage everyone, and especially SCA members, to attend these sessions free of charge in order to help create and help maintain an affirming and inclusive environment in our organization. At the end of each session, there will be a raffle drawing for a free year of SCA membership.

These sessions will not be recorded.

8 Strategies To Mitigate Implicit Bias:

Everyone holds implicit biases. That doesn’t make us “bad people,” it just means that we have work to do. This interactive training will teach you how to understand your own implicit biases in order to begin to undo them. We’ll start by learning the brain science behind implicit bias and how the part of our brain that is hardwired to assess danger has evolved to hold us back. Through polls, brief thought experiments, and writing exercises, we’ll reflect on how implicit bias can show up in our actions and they can have on ourselves and those around us.  Then we’ll roll our sleeves up and get to work, practicing 8 concrete ways to mitigate implicit bias.  You’ll leave more confident in your ability to successfully see and undo implicit bias in your own life.
