Unconscious bias exists everywhere.  Have you ever wondered where it came from and how to recognize it?

This presentation is intended to provide participants with information on what unconscious bias is, the history and evolution of unconscious bias toward people with disabilities, and tips and strategies for moving forward.

You’ll hear about current research and engage in a thought-provoking discussion about disability and unconscious bias.

The registration fee is $15 for the round table only and $25 for a box lunch from Bloom Café and the round table.

We hope to see you for an afternoon of learning! For more information, please contact Mary Thompson at 314-289-4206 or mthompson@paraquad.org.
