UU Sunday
Date: 10/14/2018
Time: 10:10:00 AM
Description: 2nd Sunday in October, UU Program, Associate Speaker Rob Brink, Angels and Idiots: Why we misjudge people, and what we can do about it.
Summary: We all agree prejudice is a moral failing. We all want to take people as they come, and know them by their deeds. And yet, prejudice stubbornly continues to exist. This talk will examine the scientific evidence for, an implications of, the halo effect, a tiny little bias that produces measurable inequalities, from who gets better pay, to who gets shorter prison stays, to who wins the argument. How do we live in a biased world? Can we fight it? Can we use it to our advantage? Or is it better to just pretend it isn't so?
Childcare available.
