Event Description

6 CE

Contemporary advances in Social Cognition have demonstrated the insidious nature of prejudice and stereotyping, even for individuals who genuinely do not perceive themselves as prejudiced or biased. Individuals can be aware of cultural stereotypes and have cognitive representations of those beliefs without personally endorsing such stereotypes, without feelings of prejudice, and without awareness that such stereotypes could affect one’s judgment and behavior. However, the use of implicit stereotypes when making decisions about other individuals can have serious negative ramifications and unknowingly perpetuate and maintain social inequality. Research demonstrates that awareness of psychological processes, particularly if these processes are non-conscious, is an important step in correcting or overcoming such processes. This workshop will focus on increasing awareness and understanding of one’s bias, as well as, developing strategies to overcome bias.
