Can science help us eliminate bias and favoritism in education, medicine, the workplace, and legal and other social systems?
This lively panel discussion will explore the biological roots of unconscious preferences, the role unconscious bias has played in human evolution, and the value of acknowledging and understanding how these shape social interactions in modern society.
Moderated by Museum Curator Rob DeSalle, the panel includes Marianne J. Legato, physician and director of the Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine; Dolly Chugh, professor at New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business; Jonathan Kahn, the James E. Kelly Professor of Law at Mitchell Hamline School of Law; and Cassie Schwerner, a senior vice president at the Schott Foundation for Public Education.Buy tickets/get more info now
