Fruita-area residents are invited to join an online event exploring the topic of implicit bias as it relates to perceptions about race.
“What Is Implicit Bias?” is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14, on the online meeting platform Zoom. Those who wish to attend are asked to pre-register via the Event Calendar on the Mesa County Libraries website.
Discussion will be centered around an exploration of personal implicit biases. Ahead of the event, participants are asked to take the Harvard Implicit Bias test to identify their own implicit biases. The implicit bias tests are available in multiple languages, and a Spanish-language interpreter will be available in the virtual event.
This event is hosted by Fruita for Equality, a collaboration among Mesa County Libraries, Lithic Bookstore, Fruita Rotary, and others to promote and support equality, inclusivity, and diversity through meaningful conversations and action in the community.
