Addressing Unintentional Bias 

No one likes to think of themselves as biased, but each of us inhabits contexts that shape our expectations and judgments of others. What does psychological science teach us about our biases and how to address them? In this session we will examine the science of implicit bias: what it is, where it comes from, and what encourages it. We will learn that the mind forms habits that we are unaware of and may even find surprising, and that certain conditions make bias more or less likely to manifest. We will also examine empirical evidence of the systematic ways that our biases can infiltrate decision processes that are relevant to interviewing, hiring, evaluation, discipline, and how we treat others. Finally, we will consider research-based examples of solutions with particular relevance to the investigative context.
