Unconscious biases are stereotypes about certain groups of people that are formed outside our own conscious awareness. Everyone has unconscious bias. We have them based on social and identity groups (race, gender, age, sexuality, etc.). These biases stem from our brain’s being programmed to make sense of the world by quickly categorizing information it receives. They affect our perceptions, judgements and behaviors. Resources include bias and gender diversity quick reads, handouts, resources from other universities, and more.
