Understanding Unconscious Bias

Today Year 12 had a gust lecture on the subject of unconscious bias. Unconscious (or implicit) bias is a term that describes the associations we hold, outside our conscious awareness and control. Unconscious bias affects everyone. Unconscious bias is triggered by our brain automatically making quick judgments and assessments. Year 12 were challenged to think about their own cultural self-awareness and how it might influence their reactions before considering how that might be different for other people. You can find out what your own unconscious biases are by taking this test.
