What is Unconscious Bias?

“Unconscious bias refers to a bias that we are unaware of, and which happens outside of our control. It is a bias that happens automatically and is triggered by our brain making quick judgments and assessments of people and situations, influenced by our background, cultural environment and personal experiences.”

The recent presidential race revealed that bias exists in all of us but we are generally unaware of it. Studies have shown that we all have unconscious biases and we are all affected by bias. Test yourself for hidden bias. www.tolerance.org/activity/test-yourself-hidden-bias

Join us and let’s explore this relevant and important topic.

The conversation will be moderated by Peter DiCaprio, an organizational learning and development practitioner whose expertise is in racial/ethnic/gender identity development and issues of identity equity in the workplace.

He has trained in Undoing Racism with The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond. He has also had Breakthrough gender violence prevention’s Catalyst Training, and has been a member of the leadership committee of Metro New York Out & Equal LGBT workplace advocacy organization.

Peter’s  workshop, It’s On Me: Processing Our Microaggressions focuses on the strategies people use to develop awareness in the face of their own unconscious biases. He is currently a consultant with Cook Ross Inc., a certified woman-owned consulting firm that specializes in organizational cultural development and transformation, leadership, and diversity & inclusion issues.

He holds a doctorate in Organizational Learning from Columbia University and is a certified mediator.

“Unconscious bias exists in all of us as it pertains to race, gender, LGBT, disability. No one is immune to this toxin.” – Shirley Moulton

Conversation Dinner Detail

Have you ever counted the number of people you’ve ‘spoken to’ in one day? How many of those conversations, were brief, going-through-the-motions exchanges of words? How many were open, honest conversations?

We have lost the art of conversation and at The ACADEMi of Life we are bringing it back. Having meaningful face to face conversations is essential to improving our well-being and essential to making the world a better place. In an intimate, one-table setting, over a 3-course meal and wine, we create an atmosphere of unobstructed dialogue and self-discovery through the simple act of getting to know all the guests at the table.

We can host only 12 persons per dinner so register early. Bring a friend. We look forward to you dinning with us. Conversation Dinners can also be arranged exclusively for groups, corporations and non-profit organizations. Please e-mail us at info@theacademioflife.com to discuss.
