Wednesday, June 16
10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Like blind spots in a car, cognitive blind spots are things we systematically overlook intentionally or subconsciously. In this workshop, attendees explore various forms of bias and engage in activities and discussion that illuminate the effect biases have on our day-to-day decisions. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to challenge their biases and develop strategies for change.
