Interactive Webinar: Training on Habit Breaking of Unconscious Biases

Do you want to be empowered to become an impactful, autonomous agent of change regarding inclusion and equity, both within your own mind and behavior, as well as in the institution you inhabit?

Over the past 15 years, Dr. William Cox and his colleagues have developed and experimentally tested the bias habit-breaking intervention, which Dr. Cox will present in this session.

This training will

  1. equip you with a deeper understanding of ways that race bias, gender bias, or other intergroup biases can unintentionally seep into judgments and behavior, and
  2. empower you to reduce the influence of those biases by teaching a set of concrete evidence-based tools for reducing biases and creating inclusion.

The bias-habit breaking intervention remains the only intervention that has been experimentally shown to produce long-term reductions in bias, as well as increasing inclusion and equity.

In contrast to many diversity or bias trainings that are neither evidence-based nor experimentally tested, the habit-breaking intervention’s effectiveness has been rigorously demonstrated in many randomized-controlled experiments.
