Understanding Unconscious Bias

Insight into the different varieties of unconscious bias, which is influenced by our background, cultural environment, personal experiences and societal stereotypes. Recognising our capacity to be affected by it is the first step to overcoming it

Unconscious bias (sometimes called implicit bias) is the name for the unprompted snap judgements and assessments of people and situations that we make. This happens involuntarily, without us noticing or realising. 

These snap judgements and assessments (biases) are influenced by our backgroundcultural environmentpersonal experiences and societal stereotypes. We may not even be aware we have some of these views or opinions, let alone how they can affect our behaviour and actions.

For clarification, the animation below by The Royal Society delves into the term and explains how unconscious bias can affect our interactions and behaviour.
