Session 3: Implicit Bias

Speaker: Julie Nelson
Director of the Government Alliance on Race & Equity, Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society


Implicit biases are those biases that people are usually unaware of and that operate at the subconscious level. Nelson will integrate the Implicit Association Test into her presentation and will highlight the ways in which bias and racism play out at the individual, institutional, and structural levels.
