Hidden bias -- also called automatic, unconscious, or implicit bias -- is the topic of the first CFAES Community Dialogue, to be held via distance on Tuesday, Nov. 20, from 11 a.m. to noon.
The program is part of a new series by the CFAES Diversity Catalyst Team set for the third Tuesday of every other month. Brief articles to read before the session will be posted on the Diversity Resources web page.
In the meantime, here's a sampling of articles and web sites to learn more about hidden bias:
- "Detecting hidden bias," HR Magazine.
- "Test yourself for hidden bias," Teaching Tolerance magazine
- "Unconscious bias," published by a partnership including Ohio State's Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity.
- "Studies of unconscious bias suggest racism not necessarily perpetrated by racists," Psychology Today.
"Case in point: Uprooting unconscious bias," The Washington Post.
