Implicit Bias Training: Does it Help Combat Racism or is it Racist?

This webinar explores the effectiveness of implicit bias training and its use within the judicial system, police departments, and private workplaces. It is especially timely after President Trump called implicit bias training “racist” in a move to restrict racial sensitivity training among federal government contractors and employees. This webinar addresses properly constructed training as a means of fulfilling the obligation to prevent discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
