Want to be a Bias Interruptor?

October 19, 2016
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
GRB 360 A

Track: Special Sessions
Type:
Level: Students/Faculty

After a short primer on unconscious biases that exist in academia, we will teach you how to become a “bias interruptor” in your classrooms, department meetings, and research labs, giving you time to practice your new skill with other attendees. Once you are familiar with being a human bias interrupter, we’ll turn to software. Yes, software also has biases which we’ll learn about in a tech talk.
