Unconscious Bias: The Science of the Brain

Facilitated by Maria White

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Maria's presentation will include information about the most recent findings in Neuroscience related to how humans process information and what we all need to do to make sure that our actions are based in fact and not on assumptions.

Maria's lively and engaging style is sure to get you thinking, and perhaps re-thinking what you have always believed about bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.  Her presentation includes small and large group exercises that will encourage participation and hands on learning.  We look forward to seeing you at this presentation.
