Unconscious bias – judgments and behaviors toward others that we’re not aware of – is everywhere in our lives.The good news is that there are things that we can do to mitigate the negative impact of biases on our organizational decision-making.

You cannot go shopping, enter a conversation, or make a decision without your biases kicking in. On the whole, biases are helpful and adaptive. They enable people to make quick, efficient judgments and decisions with minimal cognitive effort. But they can also blind a person to new information, or inhibit someone from considering valuable options when making an important decision.
