About this Event

On Wednesday, Oct. 16, social psychology expert Dr. Patricia Devine of the University of Wisconsin-Madison will share her research findings and expertise on unintentional bias and habit-breaking, as part of the 2019-20 Marquette Forum.

Decades of research have indicated that, broadly, it is possible to act in prejudicial ways while sincerely rejecting prejudiced ideas. Even for people who don’t believe stereotypes are true, those stereotypes, once absorbed, can influence people’s behavior without their awareness or intent.

Join Dr. Devine and the Marquette community for one or all of the following events focused on unintentional bias.

“Prejudice and Intergroup Relations Lab Presentation and Q+A"

Increasing receptivity to black people's bias concerns by fostering interracial humility and a cumulative perspective on bias.

10:30 a.m. to Noon

Sensenbrenner Hall, Eisenberg Reading Room

"STEM Faculty Summit: Breaking the Bias Habit”

A workshop developed by Dr. Devine and her colleagues at UW-Madison, which has shown impressive scientific evidence in making people act less biased.

1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Weasler Auditorium
