Exploring Unconscious Bias, with Vernā Myers


Diversity consultant, author, lawyer and lecturer Vernā Myers will visit East Lansing’s Hannah Community Center 6 p.m. tonight (June 12) for a talk on unconscious bias, which she defines as “the stories we make up about people before we know who they are.” Her lecture will draw from her TED Talk, “How to Overcome Our Biases? Walk Boldly Toward Them”; her podcast, “Sundays with Vernā”; and various books she’s written on the subject as she provides strategies to better recognize and curb biases in day-to-day life.

The session is free, but due to limited seating, those interested in attending should pre-register at eventbrite.com/o/city-of-east-lansing-85219639743. To learn more about Myers’ work, visit vernamyers.com.
