    Beyond The Cover: Judging the Story

    Presented by Brent Tracy   


    We’ve all heard the saying, “don’t judge a book by its cover.” But that is easier said than done. The human mind is an efficient machine designed to do so irregardless of our beliefs or intentions. It uses shortcuts, hidden and obstructed from our view, to help us navigate  

    our world. Unfortunately, these shortcuts include judgements of a person’s competence, education, class, status. And values based on our perceptions of a person’s physical attributes and appearance. We can, however, make a concerted effort to align our  behaviors with our intentions. In this interactive  discussion, we will uncover and explore the cognitive  process of our unconscious mind through scientific based research. With this  knowledge, we can shed light on these hidden biases to minimize its influence and  strengthen our community. 


    Educational Objectives: 


    1) Define cognitive bias. 

    2) List 4 reasons why cognitive bias occurs.  

    3) Describe the impact that cognitive bias has on the ASL community. 

    4) Formulate strategies to strengthen the alignment of their behaviors with intentions.


    About the Presenter:


    Brent Tracy is a CODA and native Bostonian. Since starting his interpreting career  at Gallaudet University in 1999, Brent has worn several professional hats: interpreter, coordinator, advocate, mentor, and presenter. His aim has been to provide space to address the inequities among hearing, Deaf, CODA practitioners, and stakeholders caused by a historically strained cultural climate. He leverages his influence as CEO of Equal  Access Resources Inc. on public platforms including social media to foster honest dialogues that will galvanize stakeholders to champion change.
