Uncovering Unconscious Bias Workshop

Friday, 4:00 pm–5:30 pm, St. George Room CD
Felicia Jadczak, Co-CEO and Co-Founder, She Geeks Out

You may have heard about unconscious or implicit bias, but aren't quite sure what it is or have a rudimentary understanding of it. At its core, unconscious bias is just what it sounds like. Bias that we don't consciously register. In this interactive workshop, we'll walk you through its meaning and show you several types of unconscious biases that can play out specifically in the workplace. You'll walk away with a strong grasp of unconscious bias—yes, this means you won't be able to unsee bias, which we promise, is a good thing!

This workshop is free, but space is limited. Reserve your spot by adding this workshop when registering for USENIX ATC '18.
