Implicit bias is not an choice. Biases inevitably exist and affect the workplace environment significantly if not addressed. Unconscious bias is a part of the human condition, but it is possible to uncover, understand and change it.
Addressing implicit bias takes time and considerable effort. It’s about making a more conscious choice about how you show up in the world. It’s about getting comfortable with being…well, UNcomfortable. And it is vital to creating a sustainable shift in the workplace, to improve effectiveness, innovation and profitability.
