Get a jump start by taking the scientist-developed implicit bias test below.

ARE YOU BIASED? Studies have shown that almost every individual holds biases based on a variety of factors. Also known as implicit social cognition, implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases, which encompass both favorable and unfavorable assessments, are activated involuntarily and without an individual’s awareness or intentional control.
Scientists at a number of leading universities have developed a test to gauge an individual’s implicit bias.
