Workshop on “Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People

November 17, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

We all have blind spots: subtle cues that influence our perceptions of others, and how we act towards them. On November 17, Harvard Prof. Mahzarin Banaji, co-author of the best-seller Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People, is hosting a workshop at MIT to help community members probe their own blind spots.

The workshop is sponsored by the Division of Student Life and the Institute Community and Equity Office. There’s no charge to attend, and all MIT faculty, staff, and students are welcome. In addition to a great workshop, DSL and the ICEO will provide free copies of Blindspot to anyone who registers for the event prior to Friday, October 14.

The workshop will be followed by a reception for attendees with Prof. Banaji. We look forward to seeing you there. For questions please contact Bob Ferrara at or 617-253-7495.
