Implicit Bias: It’s all Around Us
Implicit or “hidden bias” refers to the stereotypes that impact our actions, reactions and decisions – all in an unconscious manner --in almost every aspect of our lives. It encompasses favorable and unfavorable judgments of others and issues; it surrounds us, and even the most fair-minded are not immune.
This thought-provoking presentation by Beth A Slagle, Attorney at Law at Meyer, Unkovic & Scott LLP, addresses the social science around implicit bias, identifying what it is and examples of how it affects our lives, both personally and professionally. It will also help you understand the circumstances under which you are more likely to be predisposed to implicit bias in your decision making as well as ways to combat such tendencies.
