Summary

This class is offered in a highly participatory live-online format.

Bias is commonly defined as prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair. During this session, we will explore the causes of bias, discuss the impacts of negative and positive bias on ourselves and others, consider our identities and how they might intersect with bias, and develop a strategy for noticing feelings associated with bias as well as a practice of naming bias and potential bias when we notice them.
