Invitation: The Skillman Foundation to Host Implicit Bias Webinar June 29

The Detroit Regional Chamber’s partners at The Skillman Foundation are hosting a virtual implicit bias webinar on Tuesday, June 29, from 9 a.m. to noon. The training is being facilitated by Reverend Dr. Bryant T. Marks Sr., chief equity officer of the National Training Institute on Race and Equity. It will be open to all of the Foundation’s partners on a first-come, first-served basis.

Upon registering, you will receive an emailed confirmation with the Zoom link needed to access the session on June 29.  Please copy that Zoom information to your calendars.

Implicit Association Test (IAT)

Those joining the webinar are asked to complete an Implicit Association Test (IAT) assessment. The assessment takes approximately 10-12 minutes to complete. View instructions for the assessment here. Results are confidential and provided solely to you via your results page at the time of completion. Dr. Marks will use polling software in-session to discuss the group’s results as a whole. We would like to have 100% of webinar participants complete the IAT to ensure the session is successful. Please complete the IAT by close of business on Friday, June 25.

Implicit biases permeate just about every aspect of life, from education to health to policing. Implicit biases shape our personal decisions and the priorities and policies implemented in any sector. Dr. Mark will provide an in-depth look at how implicit bias works, its causes and consequences, and how it can be managed at the individual and organizational level.
