Join ANA-Illinois for our July Nursing Hot Topics. Our July webinar will be a deep dive into Implicit Bias. We encourage participants to prepare questions for our expert speakers. We hope that you will join us for the discussion.

Implicit bias is defined by the dictionary as “unconscious favoritism toward or prejudice against people of a particular ethnicity, gender, or social group that influences one’s actions or perception.” This program will discuss the definition and recognition of Implicit Bias, causes and effects of Implicit Bias, and ways to reduce the impact of Implicit Biases.
