As a society and as individuals we believe in fairness and equity...but the shortcuts our brains use automatically to process information can cause us to behave in ways that are inconsistent with those commitments. Learn about unconscious biases, how they affect our assessments of people, and how we can begin to reduce their impact in our day-to-day decision-making.
