Tackling Implicit Bias

The Department of Chemistry is pleased to host a workshop on Implicit Bias, presented by Dr. Benjamin Reese, Vice President of the Office for Institutional Equity.  The workshop will begin at 11.45am on Thursday, February 11 in 2237 French Science.

The presentation will be focused on:  How do biases affect your relationships with your peers? your labmates? your students? in the workplace? in the classroom? Your own professional development?

It is the hope that all participants will gain an understanding of implicit v. explicit bias, as well as the theory behind the development of “preferences” in early childhood and implicit bias in adults.  Several research studies will illustrate how implicit bias impacts decisions in a number of fields. Participants will be offered strategies for the management of implicit bias in their work settings.

This workshop is open to all Department members (faculty, staff, postdocs and graduate students) but spaces are limited.  We hope that you are interested in attending,  and if so, please RSVP to c.conti@duke.edu to confirm your seat.
