Let's Talk: Psychology of Bias
Time & Location
About the Event
We inherently all carry biases with us sometimes consciously and sometimes unconsciously. Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about various social and identity groups, and these biases stem from one's tendency to organize social worlds by categorizing.
Let's take the time to unpack how biases develop, the psychology behind bias, and how to identify our own biases.

About Let's Talk: Asian x Black Conversations
Let’s Talk is an Asian x Black dialogue series with the goal of opening conversations between the Black and Asian communities. It’s through understanding each other’s struggles that we can come out stronger together. The goal of this series is not to talk about how Asians can support Black Lives Matter or how to fight against Anti-Asian sentiments but more so an exploration and conversation between two groups of people who have different, yet similar experiences.
