Face-to-Face Implicit Bias Training

Our two-hour implicit bias workshop for law enforcement guides officers in tuning into the elements of their own culture, after which they will be exposed to their own implicit bias and guided down a path of recognizing the implications of those biases. As part of this training, officers develop an action plan to mitigate the implicit biases that we all have. Don't hesitate to contact Chuck Sengstock if you are interested in more information or would like to schedule this training for your agency.
