What We Do

Unconscious attitudes, also known as implicit biases, are ubiquitous and their effects are wide-ranging. Although unconscious, these biases affect our understanding, actions and decisions. From something as seemingly insignificant as the clutching of a purse in response to a passerby, to something of potential great consequence such as the lack of a surgical referral, the fingerprints of implicit bias are on many of the decisions we make. Leaning in to difficult conversations, Unlocking Implicit Bias delivers engaging, insight-enhancing, and practical workshops about implicit bias and its effect on society.

We approach this difficult topic in a very straightforward, compassionate and empathic, yet, entertaining manner. Our workshops, presented over 50 times to date, weave humor with poignant stories and personal experience into rich experiential sessions. By facilitating refreshing and productive large and small group activities, we begin to peel away the feelings of shame and guilt that many people associate with implicit bias. Approaching these issues through a more positive lens allows for a more candid and constructive forum. Ultimately, a discussion on methods to combat implicit bias provides participants with skills to take to their institutions and have an immediate impact on equity.

Who We Serve


The disparities in healthcare are significant, and while socioeconomics and access account for a portion of these gaps, implicit bias is a major contributing factor. Let us help you deliver more equitable care.


Affecting hiring practices, equity in leadership representation, and relationships with clients, leaning into discussions about implicit bias are good for organizational health-and also, the bottom line.


From K-12 to undergraduate and post graduate, implicit bias impacts how we teach and treat our students. Increasing awareness can help bring out the best in our teachers, for our students.


As with other industries, implicit bias impacts the non-profit sector. Affecting board priorities, organizational membership and the constituents you serve, this is an important discussion for any organization.

Great starting Point

“The workshop brings perspective that few of us have taken the time to reflect on. Our inherent biases affect the care we provide. We must educate ourselves to provide better care with eyes wide open. It is a great starting point in the journey to better patient care.”

Director of Hospital Medicine Ascension St. John
