How does Implicit Bias influence the effectiveness of our philanthropy?

Join john a. powell of the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society and Jeanné Isler, Field Director at the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy to explore this question. Pulling from powell’s extensive research on the subject and NCRP’s spring issue of Responsive Philanthropy, our speakers will lead an interactive session exploring the definitions of Implicit Bias, how it affects all of us as individuals, and how it impacts the decisions and trends in our philanthropic institutions. The unconscious messages we receive that shape our beliefs and reactions are often discussed in terms of race, but this workshop will explore how Implicit Bias also affects our perceptions about the size of organizations, leaders of organizations, and other identifying factors.
