Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about various social and identity groups. Though racial bias and discrimination are well documented, biases may exist toward any social group.
One’s age, gender, gender identity, physical abilities, religion, sexual orientation, weight, and many other characteristics are subject to bias. Unconscious bias is far more prevalent than conscious prejudice and often incompatible with one’s conscious values. Come to discuss how to recognize and address your own unconscious biases.
