Who, Me? Biased? As each of us experiences life—in school, at home, in church, at work, watching T.V.—we are surrounded by a number of biases. Some of these biases we consciously accept as our own, some we consciously reject, while many more fall into the subconscious level. Even though we are not aware of implicit biases, they constantly help to form our beliefs, values, ideas, and actions every day.
By taking an intentional look at implicit bias and the ways it works in our brains and in our actions, we commit to rooting out the biases that are corrupted by stereotype or prejudice. Join us as we learn what implicit bias is, how it influences our thinking, and how its impact can be minimized.
