About Unconscious Bias
Unconscious bias is a hot topic of conversation. It is estimated that companies are spending more than $8 billion a year on diversity efforts alone.
However, very few people have an accurate understanding of what bias is, how it affects them and their business, or what they can do about it.
In this 3-part session Dr Keon West, social psychologist and expert on prejudice, discrimination, diversity, and inclusion, will take you through the scientific reality of bias.
