Neuroscience of Implicit Bias Conference: Society, Systems, and Synapses

The Centers of LSTC are coming together to explore the neuroscience of implicit bias, address how it impacts various areas of our lives, and give practical examples of how we might overcome this bias in our personal and congregational lives. We’ll explore theological perspectives on implicit bias that lead us all to deeper self-examination and in our engagement with ‘others’ (racial, religious, ethnic, gender, sexuality, ability, class, etc.)

This event is scheduled for Thursday, October 13 starting at 8:30am central time. It will be held in person on LSTC's campus and offered via Zoom.
