Not In Our Town (NIOT) Novato invites you to join a Community Conversation about implicit bias on Wednesday, March 27 from 6-8pm at Novato City Hall, 901 Sherman Avenue.
Implicit bias, sometimes called unconscious bias, is how our own attitudes, feelings, stereotypes, or beliefs impact our judgement or understanding of other people. It's called unconscious because it isn't something we do blatantly; rather it is an involuntary process based on our deep-seated thoughts. Some of these biases are born as early as childhood. In spite our best intentions, we all have prejudices.
Conversations start change. Learn to recognize, challenge, counter and reduce implicit bias.
