The School of Health Sciences in the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health welcomes guest speaker Dr Pragya Agarwal, behavioural and data scientist and author, and founder of research think-tank The 50 Percent Project.
Do the roots for prejudice lie in our evolutionary past? What happens in our brains when our biases are activated? How has bias affected technology? If we don’t know about it, are we really responsible for it, and – if so – is there anything we can do to stop it?
Join Dr Adam Danquah, Associate Dean for Inclusive Education and Engagement, as he interviews Dr Pragya Agarwal.
The interview will then be followed by networking and a workshop (2-3pm) on anti-racism, inclusion and unconscious bias. You can join the event in person or online.
