Implicit Bias: Understanding the Impact of What We Don't See

Webinar Description 

Research suggests that race and ethnicity are predictors of how services are delivered, and implicit bias is one component that has been identified as influencing the provision of poor care. The elusiveness of unconscious bias underscores provider perception, unwitting use of stigmatic language, and influences assumptions and micro aggressions affecting a person's capacity to respond to care. This interactive 2-hour training discussed how cognitive bias develops, is sustained by intrinsic and environmental factors, and contributes to inequitable outcomes for persons of color. The content also informed on bias-reducing techniques and person-first language approaches that can enhance provider-client interactions and outcomes for marginalized communities.
