Education Services

We translate the latest science about implicit bias and decision-making into concrete, actionable steps to align behavior with intention, improve policies and systems, and foster more equitable and inclusive teams.

Collectively, Project Implicit Facilitators have presented over 500 Education Sessions across industries including higher education, K-12 education, healthcare, finance, law, criminal legal system, law enforcement, nonprofit organizations, and manufacturing.

Keynote Sessions

Explore how habits of thought are formed, how they influence your interactions with the people around you, and how you can mitigate their impact on your decision-making in this interactive, research-focused session. Led by Faculty Facilitators who are also professors in the field of social psychology, these sessions translate research into practical, evidence-based strategies for improving decision-making, addressing inclusion and belonging, and aligning individual and team behaviors to your personal and organizational values. Keynote Sessions are available in a virtual or on-site format.

Action Planning Sessions

Building on the strategies introduced in the Keynote Session, participants engage in a series of brainstorming and problem-solving activities to identify opportunities for change and explore actionable steps to mitigate the impact of bias on individual and group decision-making. The concepts presented apply across identity groups and industries, and the session can be tailored to a specific audience or topic, such as recruitment, hiring, retention, and mentoring. Action Planning Sessions are facilitated by Project Implicit staff and are available in a virtual or on-site format.

1:1 or Group Coaching

For individuals or teams who have completed an Action Planning Session, Project Implicit offers one-to-one or small group coaching for support and accountability. From curated, content-based sessions to address a specific opportunity for improvement to ongoing support for bias conscious change management, Project Implicit will guide your C-Suite, leaders, managers, and supervisors to reflect, identify where they are experiencing friction or need additional support, and move forward with clarity, confidence, the resources necessary to build more mindful and inclusive workplace communities.

General Logistics & Planning

Booking, Scheduling, & Priority Fees

Project Implicit books at least 30 days (i.e., about 4 weeks) in advance of any session. If a session is requested less than 30 days in advance, a 20% priority fee will be applied to the service fee.

For scheduling, we recommend booking on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays. We have found that participation and engagement for virtual sessions are highest in the morning or early afternoon.

The Ideal Audience

Project Implicit can accommodate audiences of all shapes and sizes, from a Zoom room of 10 leaders just starting a diversity, equity, and inclusion initiative to 1,000+ individuals learning about the topic of implicit bias for the first time. Our team will work with you to create the right session or sessions to meet your needs.

Video Recordings & Resources

Keynote Sessions can be recorded for an additional fee. It is not recommended that Action Planning Sessions or Coaching Sessions be recorded.

Event organizers will be provided with a Mitigation Strategies Handout to share with participants after the session.

Note: Slide decks are not considered deliverables.

Post-Session Survey

At the client’s request, Project Implicit will share an anonymous, post-session survey for participants to measure their familiarity with the concepts and content presented, the impact of the session on their intention to implement the strategies discussed, and their general interest in additional training on related topics. We are happy to share these survey results with client hosts or to share the questions to be integrated with an existing training survey or feedback process.
