Event description

Description

Wednesday, September 25 at the UpStage Cabaret at Triad Stage

TEDxGreensboro Salon events are smaller events that involve the audience in a discussion about a single topic. We will share a TED Talk and from time-to-time will add local speakers to build a dialogue with you – the participants. There will be questions, thoughts and ideas that we will ponder and explore.

Come early starting at 5:45 -- pre-order a sandwich dinner that will be waiting when you arrive or bring a snack or dinner with you (Triad Stage will have wine, beer, and soft drinks for sale) and mix and mingle with other TEDx’ers. The program will start promptly at 6:30. Register soon – enrollment is limited.

The September Salon: Got Bias?

(Spoiler - the answer is "yes"!)

For millions of years, the ability to recognize patterns and anomalies was necessary for human survival. However, this evolutionary skill has left us with implicit bias, or subconscious preferences for familiar things. Unfortunately, these preferences often lead to unacknowledged and/or unconscious acts of discrimination in our modern world. We can't avoid bias, and, while we easily see it in others, can we learn to recognize it in ourselves? Join us in viewing thought-provoking TED Talks, followed by a moderated discussion.
