Implicit Bias

A free community workshop sponsored by CHNA 15 and led by Susan Naimark

November 14, 2017
9:30 AM– 12:30 PM

Minuteman Senior Services, 26 Crosby Drive, Bedford 

Implicit Biases are our unconscious associations that generate feelings and attitudes about other people based on race, ethnicity, age, gender and other identifying traits. We all have biases that we are unaware of, and they significantly impact how we interact with others, personally and professionally. This workshop will introduce participants to the concept of implicit bias, what it is, how it develops, its impacts, and research based debiasing strategies.

This workshop will be presented by Susan Naimark. Susan is a part-time faculty at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, School of Education, an affiliate trainer with Teachers 21 and Interaction Institute for Social Change, and serves as co-chair of the board of directors of Community Change, Inc., a Boston-based racial justice education and organizing group. Learn more about Susan at http://naimark.org/

Space is limited and open to individuals, agencies and organizations from within CHNA 15 Communities of: Acton, Bedford, Boxborough, Burlington, Carlisle, Concord, Lexington, Lincoln, Littleton, Wilmington, Winchester and Woburn.
