Proven Strategies for Addressing Unconscious Bias in the Workplace

By Howard Ross, Founder & Principal Consultant 

We have a vast body of research, conducted at some of our finest institutions of learning – Harvard, Yale, the University of Washington, the University of Virginia, MIT, Tufts, and the University of Illinois, among others – that is showing us the same thing: unconscious or hidden beliefs – attitudes and biases beyond our regular perceptions of ourselves and others – underlie a great deal of our patterns of behavior about diversity.
This thought paper explores unconscious bias by trying to understand the purpose of bias. It also provides steps to identifying and addressing unconscious bias, including: recognizing that you have biases, identifying what those biases are, dissecting your biases, and deciding which of your biases you will address first.
