ABoR: Speaker Series: Open Your Mind
Description: Biased tendencies exist deep in the brain. Nearly two decades of research shows individuals harbor implicit bias even when they seem to hold no explicit prejudice—which means we perceive without even thinking. Ryan Wynett of Open Your Mind Learning Lab at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center will guide us on how to approach the issue when we see it. Ryan will walk us through how individuals can change the way they think about the brain, discrimination, and – hopefully – themselves. Using real-world examples and practical demonstrations of implicit bias, in addition to “interactive” activities— riddles, illusions, and various brainteasers— Ryan will help attendees appreciate both the power, and limits, of the human mind. Takeaway: Get ready to open yourself up to new ideas, perspectives, and experiences. Unlocking the awareness of implicit bias will help you grow in both professional and personal relationships.
