Write-up: “Part 2 of NAYGN’s D&I 3-part series deals with self-reflection in terms of unconscious bias. The first step to combatting our own unconscious biases is recognizing that we have them. Please watch the video linked to better understand how implicit bias can live within all of us. Following the video, please visit the Harvard Implicit Bias Tests linked. We encourage you to take a few of these tests, specifically “race,” “skin tone,” and “gender-career,” to reflect on your own unconscious biases. Part 3 will be a panel with the industry’s experts in unconscious bias. Register for the panel (November 19th at 11:30am EST) here.”
Part 3 – Panel Discussion
