"Interrupting Bias" is a live-action film created from a case study used at national leadership development workshops. In the film, a search committee of four tenure-track faculty debate candidate qualifications for an open position.

The movie and discussion will be led by Joyce Yen, program/research manager for the University of Washington's ADVANCE Center.

The presentation will prepare individuals to: demystify subtle discrimination; identify biases that occur during evaluation of faculty and faculty candidates; and examine assumptions of competence and "best fit."
