Behaving ethically & with professional integrity
Join us for a virtual conversation with Stanford psychology professor and author Jennifer Eberhardt who will discuss her book, “Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do.” An acclaimed and powerful examination of unconscious racial bias from one of the world’s leading experts the book has been selected as the second title for our collaboration with the Palo Alto Library’s virtual Palo Alto Reads series.
An estimated 70% of people experience impostor feelings at some point in their lives. It is widespread across academic campuses, and Stanford is no exception. A campus survey by Professor Margot Gerritsen showed that many students experience the feelings or fear of being a fake, of not having what it takes, the fear of disappointing advisors, of being "found out" to not be as smart as they were thought to be. She will share her findings and some personal experiences with the impostor syndrome, and discuss some ways to overcome it, or at least make steps toward it.
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.

Educational research shows that creating inclusive and equitable learning environments promotes learning for all students.
