Recognizing and Reducing Cultural Bias

Dr. Yevgeniya Leontyeva
Department of Social & Behavioral Sciences

We all use our own individual filters and frames of references to engage with others and make sense of the world based on our upbringing, experiences, and even the TV shows we watch – this is normal behavior. Yet, regardless of our background, a common obstacle that can interfere with effective interactions is cultural bias – prejudging others based on our own cultural standards. This friendly, informative and nonjudgmental session will help participants develop a deeper understanding of cultural diversity, recognize various types of cultural biases in ourselves and in others, and learn practical strategies to help reduce cultural bias
