Breaking the Bias Habit Workshop Nov. 20

Two sessions, 9–11:30 a.m. and 2–4:30 p.m., will be held at the Wells Conference Center.

The workshop will provide the vocabulary for talking about and recognizing implicit gender bias, and will present evidence-based strategies to reduce the effect of implicit biases.
