How We Choose and Why It Matters: Understanding Our Biases at Limmud Toronto

About the Event
How we make choices affects an incredible variety of Jewish organizational processes, from choosing a synagogue or school for our families to the selection of candidates for boards, rabbinic positions or even volunteer committees. What goes into making these choices? What's our thought process....and why does this matter? Biases are natural--we all have them. We even stereotype--even when we might be stereotyped ourselves. In order to understand these biases and stereotypes, and work around them, we must get to know ourselves and how they affect our choices, and consider how these cognitive shortcuts may affect our engagement in Jewish life. How do you choose? Join us to choose better by understanding how implicit bias affects your thinking as you make important choices both personally, professionally and as volunteers, and how we might be able to design work-arounds to enable our choices to be most useful and effective. We'll consider this in a variety of contexts so that you can take this and apply it to whatever choices feel important and relevant to YOU.
