Answering the Call: Mitigating the Impact of Implicit and Unconscious Bias

Learn how the University of California answered the call to mitigate implicit and unconscious bias in hiring practices by developing online training that can be accessed by more than 200,000 faculty and staff members at 18 locations across the state. We will discuss what the team was asked to do, how the project team was created, how content was developed, how the courses were implemented and how the university will use this model for future course development. Learn how you can use a similar approach for initiatives at your institution.
