Luncheon with Keynote Presentation
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Doors open at 11:30am. Lunch catered by Curt's Cafe.

You don't have to be racist to be biased. Unconscious bias can be at work without our realizing it, and even when we genuinely wish to treat all people equally, ingrained stereotypes can infect our visual perception, attention, memory, and behavior. This has an impact on education, employment, housing, and criminal justice.

 

Unblinking about the tragic consequences of prejudice, Dr. Eberhardt will address how racial bias is not the fault of nor restricted to a few "bad apples" but is present at all levels of society in media, education, and business. With a perspective that is at once scientific, investigative, and informed by personal experience, she will offer insights into the dilemma and a path forward - reminding us that racial bias is a human problem - one all people can play a role in solving.

 

 

Suzanne B. Calder Community Stakeholders Panel Discussion
1:45 PM - 3:00 PM

All luncheon attendees welcome. Attendance is optional.

Join us for an intimate discussion of how bias plays a role in perpetuating NIMBY-ism (Not In My Back Yard) and, in turn, a lack of affordable housing in our communities.


Our panelists will explore questions such as:
- What are the greatest obstacles to creating affordable housing?
- To battle NIMBY-ism, should we fight to change hearts and minds or can we regulate our way out of it?
- How can providers and consumers of affordable housing leverage their partnerships to create greater equity in their communities?
