Identifying Implicit and Explicit Bias

Identifying Implicit or Explicit Bias is an opportunity to identify and learn how biased behaviors surfacing through cultural insensitivity and claims of racial profiling, left unaddressed, might wrongly be perceived as acceptable organizational practices.
Students review terminology, self-identify unconscious and conscious biases, review federal statutes and learn how perceptions about bias may perhaps influence perceptions about legitimacy and procedural justice.
