Dr. Saaid Mendoza — The Psychology of Implicit Bias
If you missed the first presentation of the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’s Anti-Racism Summer Series, catch up on the Providence College Podcast.
Dr. Saaid Mendoza of the Department of Psychology also serves as faculty-in-residence in the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and director of the Social Perception & Attitudes Lab. He discusses the differences between explicit and implicit forms of bias, underlying mechanisms that drive implicit biases, how these biases operate in our social world, and steps we can take to help combat their seemingly automatic effects. Dr. Maia Bailey, associate professor of biology, moderates the presentation.
