    This interactive workshop will explore how identities, beliefs, and backgrounds shape our perceptions of other people in ways that can unconsciously widen the diversity gap and negatively impact us and the people we interact with. Participants will learn how to identify and empathetically respond to unconscious, or implicit, bias in order to foster a more inclusive environment for everyone. Prior to the workshop, participants are asked to take a few online tests developed by Harvard University to detect unconscious biases and preferences.
