Methodology - The Details


MODULE 1: Bias and Privilege

  1. The impact of privilege on how we view and treat others and how we assert ourselves in society is explored through an activity of game playing and video excerpts from scientific studies.

  2. Exploration is extended beyond the conventional race and gender paradigm, but addressed at the basic human behavior level



MODULE 2: Proactive Bias Busting

  1. Explore the Harvard based Implicit Association Test and Project Implicit, a study designed to “detect the strength of a person's automatic association between mental representations of objects (concepts) in memory” and to better understand “implicit social cognition - thoughts and feelings outside of conscious awareness and control”.  “Project Implicit translates that academic research into practical applications for addressing diversity, improving decision-making, and increasing the likelihood that practices are aligned with personal and organizational values.”

  2. Attendees are invited to take the IAT and come to share their test experience and/or results. Sharing results or anything that would be uncomfortable is not necessary. Participation is optional.

  3. Attendees participate in decision activities from various professions to hone decision-making skills with reduced bias and create a portfolio of bias busting tools to take with them.
