Unconscious bias happens as our brains make quick judgements and assessments of people and situations without us realizing. Our biases are influenced by our background, cultural environment, and personal experiences. “Making the unconscious conscious will help you make more objective decisions, facilitate inclusive interactions, and create opportunities. Begin unbiasing with education, accountability, measurement, and more.” (Re:Work, "Unbiasing").
Increasingly, businesses depend on the ability to communicate effectively across differences to reflect its values to stakeholders, maintain profitability, secure good results, and achieve a reputation to admire and inspire. It is therefore important to develop a clear understanding of how to manage biases and to recognize the value of creating an open, fair, and inclusive workplace culture.
