Unconscious (Implicit) Bias
Lets talk....... IMO everyone has experienced a Bias at sometime in their life. I wonder if we know we are Bias or is it Unconscious.
This is a every day life activity that can hurt everyone.
HEALTH - Medical professional do not see past you are over weight and only treat you according to your size. The rash you have could be something serious but they give you a cream because they think it is just a fat roll irritation. (This is a true example of a friend. She had surgery and the doctor treated her differently for the swelling in the surgery area as not swelling but fat. Sent home and the incision bust open and the swelling was due to an infection)
EMPLOYMENT & Social Media - Unsurprisingly, unconscious bias threatens the Business. Most of the time, people are unaware that their unconscious bias is doing this. The danger of biases that people are unaware of fuel employment decisions such as hiring, promoting, firing, banning.
It goes on and on, Race, Political Affiliation, MAGA, Education etc.
What do you think? Whatn have you seen in your day to day interactions IYO is Implicit Bias?
