Webinar Description: Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness usually in a way considered to be inequitable. Biases can have negative or positive consequences and affect our interactions with others such as during student interviews. An interactive web-based training was developed to facilitate pharmacy school interviewers in addressing their biases and help them develop ways to overcome them in an effort to make the admissions process more equitable. Implementing implicit bias training during the college admissions process for pharmacy schools can help create equity amongst student candidates and cultivate diversity and inclusion. This webinar will discuss the training, feedback from interviewers and future implications.Webinar Objectives:
