Ohio State ADVANCE presents:
“Breaking the Bias Habit: A Workshop to Promote Gender Equity.”
January 30, 2017, 3:00-5:00PM
Physics Research Building, room 1080 (Smith Seminar Room)

This workshop introduces participants to the concepts of unconscious biases and assumptions about gender by treating the application of such biases as a “bad habit.” Participants will uncover their own biases through use of an Implicit Association Test and discover underlying concepts and language used in the psychological and social psychological literature to describe such processes. Proven strategies for reducing the application of these biases will be provided.
