The Breaking the Bias Habit®: Bias Reduction in Medicine (BRIM) workshop, a three-hour session, is one of the few interventions found to be effective in fostering bias-reducing behavioral change. 

In response to repeated requests from other institutions to present the BRIM workshop, the BRIM investigators will offer the virtual workshop, to all who wish to register. The workshop fee is $300 per registrant.

The BRIM workshop uses research examples relevant to faculty in academic medicine to illustrate how cultural stereotypes about diverse groups of people create unwanted cognitive habits that lead to unintended (“implicit”) errors in perception, judgment, and decision-making. The workshop then provides tools to help participants break these unwanted habits: first, by providing a vocabulary to help participants diagnose common manifestations of bias (bias literacy), and then by offering specific evidence-based strategies participants can practice to help them overcome the unintended influence of cultural stereotypes.

After participating in the BRIM workshop, attendees should be able to:

  1. Describe how cultural stereotypes can lead to cognitive habits that advantage some groups and disadvantage other groups in academic science and medicine.
  2. Recognize and name at least three ways group stereotypes can bias perceptions and judgments.
  3. Practice at least three strategies found to help break the bias.
