Like it or not, we all have biases. The fact is, if we have a brain, we have a bias.

A bias is a disproportionate weight in favor of or against an idea or thing, usually in a way that is closed minded or prejudice or unfair. Biases can be innate or learned. People may develop biases for or against an individual, a group, or a belief.

In this highly engaging and interactive virtual course, we will explain how biases negatively affect critical thinking, give rise to racial injustice, gender bias, and even affect scientific research and its application. We will explore what bias really looks like, dive into the neuroscience behind cognitive bias, learn validated tools to de-bias, and have time for practical application of de-biasing tools. Participants will be actively cultivating critical thinking skills – necessary to inspire personal and organizational change.
