Navigating Unconscious Bias: How Our Automatic Thoughts Shape Our Reality

Thursday, February 27, 2020, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in Unity Hall

Unconscious biases, or automatic thoughts, affect every aspect of our lives, such as how we interact in relationships, our decisions as consumers and investors, our choices in healthcare, and much more.

Join us for a panel discussion on how cognitive biases create a lens through which we view the world.  Psychologists have identified and described nearly 200 separate cognitive biases, including well-known ideas such as confirmation bias, stereotyping, and the placebo effect.

We will discuss what cognitive bias is (and what it is not), how to recognize it in ourselves, and what do to about it, if anything.

With the ever-expanding influence of social media, the speed with which information, and misinformation, are spread is accelerating.  Learn how to become part of a solution to creating a more honest, open, and peaceful world by building an awareness of biases in ourselves and others, and ways to minimize their negative influences.

This is a panel discussion moderated by Rev. Joanne Rowden, Greg Skuderin, Karen Tomoff and Kate Zirkle.

Free to attend.  Love offering accepted.
