Week #2 Activity: "Unconscious Bias" Toolbox Talk
This Toolbox Talk reminds us that unconscious biases (also known as implicit bias) are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about various social and identity groups, and these biases stem from one’s tendency to organize social worlds
by putting people into categories. Many unconscious biases tend to be exhibited toward minority groups based on factors such as class, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality, religious beliefs, age, disability and more.
