If you have a brain, you have bias! Strategies and practices for mitigating biased decision making
Join NCCJ’s Program Director, Michael Robinson, on February 18 at 9am. We’ll explore how our identities shape our unconscious biases (the assumptions we all make about people, usually without realizing we’re doing it.) and learn some practices we can use to mitigate the unintended feelings, judgements, and decisions that result from biased thinking.
