Host a Session to Learn about Implicit Bias

Project Implicit offers virtual and on-site Education Sessions that focus on the science, impact, and mitigation of biases.

Collectively, Project Implicit Facilitators have presented over 400 sessions for companies and organizations including universities, hospitals, manufacturing, financial institutions, law firms, Fortune 500 corporations, and community-based organizations.

**In order to keep our facilitators and our audiences safe, we will only be offering virtual sessions through December 2021.**

Understanding Implicit Bias

In this session, participants learn how mental processes outside of our awareness can influence how we perceive and understand reality. The facilitator also explains how social psychology researchers measure and understand social cognition and implicit bias and how individuals and organizations can mitigate the influence of biases on thoughts and behaviors through concrete, actionable steps.

Session Outline:

  • Exploring Perceptual, Social, and Decision-Making Biases
  • Understanding Bias in Action
  • Reducing the Impact of Bias

Ideal Audience // The content of Understanding Implicit Bias is appropriate for any audience size or industry.

Format // Virtual Sessions are typically presented as a 90-minute interactive lecture (75 minutes content + 15 minutes discussion). On-Site Sessions can be presented as a 60-90 minute keynote, a half-day workshop, or a full-day intensive. Please contact our team to determine which format is best for your team.

Session Logistics & Planning

Pricing

In order to accommodate organizations of all sizes and budgets, we have chosen to provide service fee estimates after an inquiry call with our team. We prefer to get to know our clients and to build a scope of work around their audience and learning objectives.

We also offer special pricing for colleges, universities, nonprofit organizations, small businesses, and community organizations.

Booking Timeline & Priority Fees

If sessions are booked less than 30 days in advance, a 20% priority fee will be applied in addition to the standard service fee.

Resources

Project Implicit will provide an optional Reflection and Action Plan Handout upon request.

Client Contacts will also be provided with a Mitigation Strategies Handout to distribute to participants after the session.

Note: Slide decks are not considered a deliverable and will not be shared as part of the service.

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 in an existing training survey or feedback process.

Video Recording

Project Implicit will record the Education Sessions for people who were not able to attend the live session (i.e., limited access). For an additional fee, Project Implicit will allow sessions to be recorded by the Client to be used internally (i.e., unlimited access). In either case, videos are not to be shared outside of the organization or posted on a public page or website (i.e., YouTube, Vimeo, etc).

On-Site Requirements

On-Site Sessions require a projector, screen, microphone, and podium/lectern. If Project Implicit is required to provide any of these items, procurement fees will be passed to the client upon invoicing.

For Half-Day and Full-Day Sessions, an additional $100-$250 may be assessed for supplies including easel flip charts, markers, and printed materials depending on the number of participants.

Code of Conduct for Virtual Sessions

In the standard Education Services Agreements, Clients are asked to acknowledge the following Code of Conduct and agree to support Project Implicit in upholding the items below:

  • Please avoid interrupting the speaker during the presentation. We invite you to share your questions in the chat (for virtual sessions) or wait until the designated Q&A.
  • Please don’t share screenshots or recordings of the speaker or the presentation slides on social media. We encourage you to share what you’ve learned in your own words.
  • Be respectful and courteous to your fellow participants. For virtual sessions, please keep your mic on mute if you are not speaking.

Disclaimer

Project Implicit’s objective is to provide education on general topics, including inclusion and diversity awareness. Provision of an educational session does not imply a guarantee against litigation for discrimination. Diversity seminars themselves are unlikely to reduce litigation and may increase employees’ awareness of potential discriminatory situations. Project Implicit is not responsible for any potential litigation concerning possible discriminatory practices by the Client.

Session Request

From time to time, Project Implicit offers virtual sessions for small businesses and nonprofit organizations that do not have the budget for a standard session. If you would like to be considered for this service, please submit an inquiry here.

Please note that due to limited facilitator availability, we cannot meet all requests.
