Mindbugs: The Ordinary Origins of Implicit Bias
Human Resources

Over millennia, our brains have learned to make hundreds of thousands of decisions without our even being aware of the choices being made. This is the heart of the biases that influence every interaction you have with other human beings. Learn from the “Project Implicit” research group on how you can better understand the underlying beliefs that drive your actions, as well as receive information about the Implicit Association Test (IAT).

Learning Objectives:
  • Define implicit bias and the unconscious reactions that influence every human interaction.
  • Learn how the IAT reflects and measures your own biases.
  • Apply your new awareness of implicit bias knowledge to positively impact your personal and business interactions.
