Education Services

Host a Session

Project Implicit offers virtual and on-site Education Services that focus on the science, impact, and mitigation of biases, attitudes, and stereotypes in order to improve decision-making and belonging.

Identify your blind spots. Build awareness of how bias affects your personal and professional relationships. Learn strategies and tactics for mitigating the impact of bias on your decision-making and align your actions with your intentions.

Collectively, Project Implicit Facilitators have presented to over 500 companies and organizations across industries including higher education, K-12 education, healthcare, finance, law, international NGOs, community-based organizations, and manufacturing.

Faculty Keynote
Sessions

These sessions are presented by Project Implicit-affiliated professors and are available in a virtual or on-site format.

Reflective Webinars

Build awareness and learn actionable, evidence-based strategies for mitigating the impact of bias while creating measurable, lasting change as an individual and as an organization. The concepts presented apply to many identity groups and across industries, and the content can be tailored to your audience. Sessions are available as one-time sessions or as an annual membership.

Skill-Building
Workshops

Tailor your education, team-building, and brainstorming to specific teams or committees within your organization. Workshops are specially curated content presented in 2-3 hour sessions that address common issues facing teams, managers, and leaders within an organization.
