Becoming aware of unconscious bias
How quickly do you make assumptions about new people you meet? Even the most open-minded people will occasionally jump to conclusions and form the wrong impression of another person or of a situation, particularly across different cultures.
You will learn and be more aware of the following topics:
- “A machine for jumping to conclusions" – A quick look at some relevant research into how our brain works
- “Unconscious bias” – how our experiences, stereotypes and expectations can lead us down the wrong path
- “Confirmation bias” – the dangers of surrounding ourselves only with people who are just like us and why diversity expands our horizon
