About the Mini-Lesson

Where does bias come from? In this mini-lesson you will explore the differences between explicit and implicit bias and how to challenge it in our everyday lives.

This self-paced micro-lesson will enable you to:

  • Define explicit and implicit bias and recognize how it impacts behavior.
  • Experience the science behind bias.
  • Learn how to interrupt bias.
