    Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People

    Join fellow alumnae and current Emma Willard parents for Dr. Mahzarin Banaji's virtual seminar, Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People.  The purpose of the event is to reveal the surprising and even perplexing ways in which we make errors in assessing and evaluating others. It is Dr. Banaji’s belief that people intend well and that the inconsistency we see, between values and behavior, comes from a lack of awareness. But because implicit bias is pervasive, we must rely on scientific evidence to “outsmart” our minds.  If we do so, we will be more likely to reach the life goals we have chosen for ourselves and to serve the world better in which we live. 
     
    The presentation will be followed by a moderated Q&A with the audience.
