Description

SWE-San Diego and Solar Women Engineers invite you to attend the first Wine & Webinar of 2019!


Health Effects of Subconscious Bias: Mind, Body, & Community Well-being

Community and connection are more important for our health than we recognize, and yet our evolutionary brains are wired to fear “the other.” When we let our subconscious minds undermine our behaviors towards members of our community, we all suffer health and productivity consequences. Becoming aware of our own biases is the first step in taking action towards more inclusive, healthier environments for everyone.

Learning objectives:

- Identify and discuss the root of subconscious bias leading to unhealthy communities.
- Recognize and neutralize fears associated with “the other” by reconciling implicit bias on a personal and organizational scale
- Recognize ways to feel comfortable with discomfort, in order to create a healthier selves and a more cooperative culture


ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Business, biology, brain science: Dr. Rebecca Heiss brings the best of all three worlds together. After earning a PhD with research designated as ‘transformative’ by the National Science Foundation, Rebecca went on to hold multiple appointments in academia, and helped to found a paradigm shifting school. Described as a creative thought leader, she was honored to deliver a TEDx on a portion of her work and has built her career on helping others break through their biological ‘blind spots.’
