Event Description

In an era of increased awareness of diversity and inclusion, understanding hidden bias and its impact on educational institutions has become paramount. Professor Mahzarin Banaji is an experimental psychologist who has spent 35 years understanding how the mind works in social contexts. Her presentation will center on a science-based analysis of the hard questions of how to lead in an ever-changing world where who is "us" and who is "them" has significantly changed from what those words meant to our predecessors.
