This program will explore the hidden biases that we all carry from a lifetime of experiences and cultural messages. Ryan Wynett will examine the ways our brains process input at an unconscious level which, in turn, can direct our social responses.

Prior to the program, participants are encouraged to complete a brief, interactive, online quiz, called an Implicit Associations Quiz at https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/ There are several options within the Social Attitudes category. The black/white quiz is the most relevant to this program.
