“Implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases, which encompass both favorable and unfavorable assessments, are activated involuntarily and without an individual’s awareness or intentional control. Residing deep in the subconscious, these biases are different from known biases that individuals may choose to conceal for the purposes of social and/or political correctness. Rather, implicit biases are not accessible through introspection.” ~ Kirwan Institute at the Ohio State University.
Hear guest speaker Ryan Wynett, Learning Lab Specialist at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, discuss what science has shown about our hidden biases.
