CBD2020: Becoming Conscious of Unconscious Bias:Contemplative practice to deepen respect & inclusion

Thursday, October 1, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:15pm

In this session, we will explore everyday implicit, or unconscious, biases in the workplace: how to identify bias, how to address bias, and ultimately, how to make our unconscious biases conscious. We will cover the literature on bias and inclusion in education, academic medicine specifically, and the workplace more generally as we work together to building a more inclusive culture in our own spaces.

Dr. Magali Fassiotto is Associate Dean for Faculty Development and Diversity at Stanford University School of Medicine. She has worked in organizational change and organizational management for 15 years in the private, government, and educational sectors. She manages the school’s efforts in professional development activities, strategic initiatives related to the recruitment and retention of a diverse and inclusive faculty, and research related to faculty development and diversity.
