NAR Introduces Implicit Bias Training for Realtor® Members, Associations
Amid calls for racial justice after the death of George Floyd, the National Association of REALTORS® has launched a new training video in partnership with the Perception Institute called “Bias Override: Overcoming Barriers to Fair Housing,” which aims to help you uncover and address unconscious stereotypes you may believe. The video illustrates how the brain’s automatic association of stereotypes with particular groups can cause people to treat others differently or unfairly. Further, the research suggests that despite people’s best intentions and conscious awareness, some biases can persist.
