Hardwired? How our brain makes unconscious judgments and what we can do about it

9.00am - 10.00am (AEST)

Marni Panas, Canada

Are you biased?  Well I am.  And you are, too.  We’re all biased.  Unconscious bias causes us to make quick and often, inaccurate judgments based on limited facts and our own life experiences.  These judgments can give individuals and groups both an unearned advantage and an unearned disadvantage.  This session explores how our brains form unconscious judgements.  We review various forms of bias and how those biases impact the decisions we make and our interactions with each other.  We will also explore strategies to reduce bias in our day to day lives.
