Unconscious bias, or implicit bias, is built in our DNA and is a part of our human nature. Humans automatically categorize individuals and groups, which help us make sense of the world. Unconscious bias includes mental shortcuts that categorize people we are unfamiliar with into specific groups. These groups are often labeled “good” or “bad”. Our brain is hard-wired to create groups and from an evolutionary standpoint, this hard-wiring has helped us in determining what was safe and what meant danger.

Attend this Live Webinar by expert speaker Susan Strauss, to understand unconscious bias, which includes the subtle associations that we make towards groups of people. Unconsciously operating stereotypes is often the root of our bias. This phenomenon has been used to partially explain the racial tension in the U. S. and particularly with the police shootings of Black men. The U. S. Department of Justice (DOJ) recognizes that unconscious bias plays an important role in the lives of attorneys and law enforcement people.

Unconscious bias influences those inequalities.

Wall Street estimated that 20% of large corporations conduct unconscious bias training. This webinar will help shape the organizational climate and address implicit bias.
