LUNCH & LEARN: Implicit Bias refers to the beliefs, thoughts, attitudes, and emotions that impact our behaviors, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. This workshop is designed to walk alongside participants to understand the cognitive, cultural and socio-emotional considerations related to implicit biases and how it influences our decision-making and interactions.
