Shankar Vedantam

07:00 pm - 03/21/2018

@ Carnegie Music Hall of Oakland

4400 Forbes Avenue
Pittsburgh PA 



Like a puppeteer behind a curtain, the hidden brain shapes our behavior, our choices and the course of our relationships. But unconscious biases don’t just live in our individual brains; they also influence the success or failure of our organizations.

As National Public Radio’s social science correspondent and the host of the Hidden Brain Podcast, Shankar Vedantam offers unique insights into how our unconscious biases affect the decisions we make. He bases these insights on data, not psychological theories of the subconscious, to reveal unconscious patterns and ways in which we can avoid the mistakes they often cause.

Science, data and human behavior will collide in this free Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh lecture. Reserve your tickets today!
