This special webinar - the second in the Beyond Bias series - will help deepen understanding of the emerging science of implicit bias (also known as unconscious bias). It will also introduce the dynamics of racial anxiety and stereotype threat. The Within Our Lifetime (WOL) network's intent is to use the Beyond Bias series to lay the foundation for the October launch of a nationwide campaign focused on implicit bias. This second webinar builds on the network's successful and compelling first webinar presented by the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity.
