Implicit biases are attitudes or stereotypes that unconsciously affect our actions, decisions, and understanding. Implicit biases can manifest in the criminal justice system, workplace, school setting, and in the healthcare system. This may range from categories of race, gender, and sexuality. These biases often arise as a result of trying to find patterns and navigate the overwhelming stimuli in this very complicated world. Culture, media, and upbringing can also contribute to the development of such biases. Research reveals effective interventions to reduce these biases.
