Insights in Inclusion - Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People

What:

Insights in Inclusion is a periodic series of “deep dives” on topics that support the implementation of Diverse by Design™, our region’s groundbreaking initiative to attract, develop and retain diverse, high potential talent and move our region to full inclusion.

This session will focus on the hidden biases of good people with Harvard professor and global expert Mahzarin Banaji.

Most human beings take seriously the idea that their behavior ought to be consistent with their deeply held values and principles. The last fifty years of research in psychology has challenged this possibility.

Professor Banaji will speak to the question of how well-intentioned people behave in ways that deviate from their own values and principles. She'll discuss how this state of affairs compromises decisions in the social context: decisions about a person’s worth and competence as they play out in public settings.

This workshop is participatory, involving educational and entertaining hands-on exercises. It is geared toward providing insights into how our minds work, often in a surprising and even perplexing manner. Professor Banaji will demonstrate how subtle cues influence how we perceive others and act towards them, because we automatically rely on information about the groups people belong to.

The purpose of the workshop is to reveal mental blindspots that can compromise our professional and personal decisions if they are left unattended and to begin a conversation about what might be done to help us lead the examined life we aspire to.
