Check and Conquer Implicit Bias

Implicit bias is a form of bias that occurs automatically and unintentionally, that nevertheless affects judgments, decisions, and behaviors. Implicit biases are naturally acquired, mostly unconscious beliefs or views about others who are different from us. Research shows that all people have biases, but with education, awareness, and conscious use of self you can prevent their expression. Biases can sour interactions on the job, damage morale, and affect the bottom line. When bias is checked, employees remain focused and engaged and possess a stronger sense of belonging. And ultimately, those who are different from the majority come to believe their value is unconditionally accepted.
