Details

In partnership with Elevate Change, a group of Diversity & Inclusion community leaders, Women In Tech Denver MeetUp is happy to announce a film screening of the Bias Film Documentary. Tickets are free but RSVP is required. Due to space limitations if you are unable to attend please edit your confirmation asap so we can release your ticket for others.

Description:
If you're human, you're biased. Now what?

Bias is a film that challenges us to confront our hidden biases and understand what we risk when we follow our gut. Through exposing her own biases, award-winning documentary filmmaker Robin Hauser highlights the nature of implicit bias, the grip it holds on our social and professional lives, and what it will take to induce change.
