The 8:46 Series. Hosted by the YMCA and the NCCJ.

Unconscious Bias

Beyond The 8:46 Series

“If you have a brain, you have a bias!” How checking bias can make us better community members.

Join Michael Robinson, Program Director, of NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad as we explore how our identities shape our unconscious biases (the assumptions we all make about people, usually without realizing we’re doing it.); examine how our body’s nervous system and brain work together to form these biases; and learn some practices we can use to mitigate the unintended feelings, judgments, and decisions that result from biased thinking.
