Change the way you think about the way you think—and learn why having implicit bias is nothing to feel bad about.

There will be real-world examples and practical demonstrations of implicit bias, as well as riddles, optical illusions and mind-teasers, to help appreciate the 3-pound wonder that is the human brain.

Webinar will also include time for participant questions.
