Check out this sneak peek clip of Sejal explaining the difference between conscious and unconscious bias, and how your unconscious biases are developed.
“When you talk about bias, the first thing is to understand that there is conscious bias and unconscious bias. So, that’s a huge distinction.
I think a lot of people, when you even just say that word bias, they jump to the conscious bias, the racism, the sexism, the all of the isms. The prejudice, the hate, and that’s conscious bias, but there’s a whole element of unconscious bias.
So, that’s (unconscious bias) what’s normal, because we have a brain, our brain processes all this information, and that leads to us engaging in behaviors or actions towards other people without even knowing it. It’s happening unconsciously.
