Beyond Implicit Bias: Motivations and Actions
Sponsors: Implicit Bias Collaborative
Wednesday, 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Location: Saxbe Auditorium, Drinko Hall/Moritz College of Law
Fee: free, register by March 19
Join the Implicit Bias Collaborative as we delve further into implicit bias by examining how motivations affect action and the possibilities for overcoming biases with Ohio State experts on the subject. Cheryl Staats, researcher from the Kirwan Institute, Professor Russell Fazio from Ohio State's Department of Psychology and Ohio State's Dr. Quinn Capers, IV, associate dean, College of Medicine and assistant professor, cardiovascular medicine, will present.
Dr. Fazio, the Harold E. Burtt Chair in Psychology, is an American Psychological Association Fellow and recipient of a National Science Foundation grant and many National Institute of Mental Health grants, among others. His research is centered on the study of attitudes, such as prejudice and stereotyping, and focuses on attitude formation, change, and accessibility, attitude-behavior consistency, and social cognition. He is the author of "Attitudes: Insights from the New Implicit Measures" and has articles published in numerous journals.
Staats is the author of "State of the Science: Implicit Bias Review," an extensive document that synthesizes a broad range of scholarly literature on how unconscious racial associations influence human decision-making and outcomes. The "Implicit Bias Review" highlights how cognitive forces that shape individual behavior without our awareness can contribute to societal inequities. Much of her current work focuses on implicit racial/ethnic bias.
Dr. Capers was named one of America’s Best Doctors of 2009. He is associate dean for admissions in The Ohio State University College of Medicine, and an assistant professor of clinical medicine and director of Peripheral Vascular Interventions in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Wexner Medical Center. Dr. Capers was a National Research Service Award grantee of the National Institutes of Health as a cardiology fellow. In 2010, Dr. Capers received the Carter G. Woodson Award for Outstanding Community Service from Defense Supply Center in Columbus.
If you attended the fall 2013 semester implicit bias workshops, please RSVP for this workshop as it will go beyond the introductory material of those preceding it. Lunch will be included, RSVPs are required. Register by March 19.
