Description

Community members are invited to attend a series of conversations hosted by the City of Mercer Island and One Mercer Island (One MI). This program was developed by One MI and Do the Work MI, two community groups committed to inclusivity and supporting families of color on Mercer Island. The fourth event in the series is an interactive training on implicit biases.

Event description from Let’s Talk Mercer Island webpage:

Everyone holds implicit biases. That doesn’t make us “bad people,” it just means that we have work to do. This interactive training will teach you how to understand your own implicit biases in order to begin to undo them. We’ll start by learning the brain science behind implicit bias and how the part of our brain that is hardwired to assess danger has evolved to hold us back. Through polls, brief thought experiments, and writing exercises, we’ll reflect on how implicit bias can show up in our actions and they can have on ourselves and those around us.
