Career Pathing: “Implicit Bias and Microaggressions and their Effects in the Workplace”

J.W. Jones Student Union, Ballroom

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Implicit bias develops from a human need to process information at a fast rate to make quick decisions. While it is important to understand the negative consequences of implicit bias, it is also important for all of us to mitigate our own biases. During this program, Dr. Justin Mallett, director of diversity, equity and inclusion at Northwest, will examine why and how implicit bias is formed, the different types of implicit bias and the impact implicit bias has in the workplace. Mallett also will provide methods on handling implicit bias and how to examine our own biases. The program will finish with tips on how to handle microaggressions if you hear or see them within the workplace.

This session, presented by Northwest Career Services, is offered at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Career Pathing presentations are free for Northwest students and employees and provide professional development opportunities to students interested in advancing to new levels of pay and responsibility.
Community members are invited at a cost of $25 for Maryville Chamber of Commerce members or $40 for non-members. For more information and registration, go to
