Bias Habit Breaking Training for NLPES Members

The National Legislative Program Evaluation Society is hosting a special three-hour training for NLPES members. This online training will take place via Zoom.

Organizations have become concerned with identifying strategies to reduce rates of bias incidents and to promote equality. The bias habit breaking training was the first and remains the only intervention that has been shown experimentally to produce long-term changes in bias. This training was built on more than 30 years of research on the prejudice habit model. It provides evidence-based approaches to reducing bias and creating inclusion.

This three-hour training:

  1. Equips attendees with a deeper understanding of ways that race bias, gender bias, or other intergroup biases can seep into judgments and behavior unintentionally.
  2. Empowers people to reduce the influence of those biases by teaching a set of concrete evidence-based tools for reducing biases.
