Keynote Speaker: Patricia Devine, University of Wisconsin, Madison, on "Breaking the bias habit:  From individual to institutional change"

Devine returns to Oakton to present this workshop for educators and to revisit the problem of implicit bias as a common, unconscious habit. She will help attendees identify implicit bias in the classroom and the workplace, and introduce strategies to reduce its influence. While this workshop focuses on STEM subjects, definition and strategies may be applied to all academic areas.

Refreshments will be provided.
