Social Identity and Implicit Bias:
Unpacking Key Concepts and Creating Foundational Knowledge

The presentation will begin with an overview of social identities (e.g. race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, ability, etc.). Participants will consider their own identities and how they experience these identities. Self-awareness is key in addressing biases. Next, participants will be introduced to bias, both implicit and explicit, and how this impacts our interactions with others. Participants will be asked to consider their own biases and begin to understand where these biases come from. Strategies will also be shared for addressing biases.
