Abstract

For my research I am investigating implicit bias toward individuals with disabilities. While not as obvious to an individual as explicit bias, implicit bias is something that still affects the lives of many individuals with disabilities that are people like our neighbors, friends, or even family. Studying bias would illuminate the current temperature toward individuals with disabilities. During this pandemic the lives of individuals with disabilities have never been more at risk. One misstep by an individual may lead to the death of an at risk individual, and indiscretion by the masses may have devastating effects on the population of individuals with a disability. This is why I believe my presentation, rather than a poster, to be important. Every individual carries a bias, but unfortunately in today's new normal this bias may have more dangerous effects on one group of individuals versus another. To spell out such bias may have more of an effect on an individual than any other point in human history. As an individual with a disability I would be honored with this opportunity to present my research in hopes of helping and inspiring others.

Implicit Bias Toward Individuals with Disabilities

For my research I am investigating implicit bias toward individuals with disabilities. While not as obvious to an individual as explicit bias, implicit bias is something that still affects the lives of many individuals with disabilities that are people like our neighbors, friends, or even family. Studying bias would illuminate the current temperature toward individuals with disabilities. During this pandemic the lives of individuals with disabilities have never been more at risk. One misstep by an individual may lead to the death of an at risk individual, and indiscretion by the masses may have devastating effects on the population of individuals with a disability. This is why I believe my presentation, rather than a poster, to be important. Every individual carries a bias, but unfortunately in today's new normal this bias may have more dangerous effects on one group of individuals versus another. To spell out such bias may have more of an effect on an individual than any other point in human history. As an individual with a disability I would be honored with this opportunity to present my research in hopes of helping and inspiring others.
