The Neuroscience Behind Implicit Bias

Just released: A new Spectra Diversity White Paper.  No one really starts out the day saying, “I’m going to show my bias today.” Yet, that is the result…we all have unconscious bias. It may seem frustrating that there is no way to understand or control your unconscious. No need to worry: the past few decades of neuroscience and behavioral research have provided immense information explaining the why and how behind unconscious bias. In this paper, research is explored, as it affects unconscious bias specifically in the workplace.
