Throughout our lives, we are exposed to millions of messages about the world around us – messages that shape our perceptions of people, places, concepts, and ideas. As a result, all humans possess a range of implicit associations that operate unconsciously outside our awareness, and often times in conflict with our explicit beliefs. Using an engaging and participatory structure, this workshop equips attendees with a deeper understanding of our unconscious mental processing and the ways in which these implicit associations impact our decision-making. NASFAA is pleased to have subject matter expert Lena Tenney, Coordinator of Public Engagement at The Ohio State University Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity's Race & Cognition Program, leading this session.
