Blind Spot: Hidden Biases of Good People

Date and Time:
Starts at 1:30 pm on June 19, 2015 up to 4:30 pm on June 19, 2015.

Event Details:

The seminar will feature Harvard psychology professor Mahzarin Banaji, Ph.D., an internationally recognized authority on the subject of implicit bias. Implicit bias is an area of neuroscience in which Dr. Banaji has invested 20 years of research and analyzed 15 million test results using a tool known as the Implicit Association Test (IAT). The findings reflect the extent to which perceptions of social groups, without the viewer's awareness, shape judgments, likes, dislikes, and conclusions of other people's character, ability and intelligence. Since the publication of her recent book, Blind Spot: Hidden Biases of Good People, Dr. Banaji has presented interactive seminars about implicit bias to judges, bar associations, law firms and Fortune 500 companies.
