Beyond the Cover: Judging the StoryContains 7 Component(s), Includes Credits
This webinar is 0.2 CEUs in the category of Professional Studies (PS) and Power, Privilege, and Oppression (PPO) and is presented at the Some Knowledge level. We’ve all heard the saying, “don’t judge a book by its cover.” But is that actually possible? Research shows that 99% of our behaviors are influenced by our unconscious mind, hidden from our view, whether intentional or not. Even “good people” subconsciously generate assumptions of a person’s competence, education, class, status, and values based on their perceived race, gender, age, and audiological status. These assumptions lead to implicit biases, which significantly impact how we interact with society including our peers, superiors, consumers, and stakeholders.

Asia is one of the largest continents divided by several regions with each bringing forth its own myriad of cultures and traditions. What is it like to be an Asian Deaf American?
