Unintentional social bias and stereotyping can lead to harmful discrimination against women and minority groups. But stereotyping and unintentional bias are often hard habits to break. Doing so requires awareness, openness, motivation, and practice. Using reflection and habit-breaking exercises, this class will explore some of the most recent advances in reducing unintentional bias.

Lisa Legault is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Clarkson University. She is a social psychologist who conducts research on human motivation and self-control in general, but also in terms of how they pertain to the self-control of prejudice.
