Psychologists at Harvard, the University of Virginia, and the University of Washington created “Project Implicit” to develop Hidden Bias Testscalled Implicit Association Tests, or IATs, in the academic worldto measure unconscious bias.

Hidden Bias Tests measure unconscious, or automatic, biases. Your willingness to examine your own possible biases is an important step in understanding the roots of stereotypes and prejudice in our society.

The ability to distinguish friend from foe helped early humans survive, and the ability to quickly and automatically categorize people is a fundamental quality of the human mind. Categories give order to life, and every day, we group other people into categories based on social and other characteristics. This is the foundation of stereotypes, prejudice and, ultimately, discrimination.

Identify your hidden biases.  Share three.  Using the Reinventing Diversity textbook (Howard Ross) examine the Conundrum of Community located in Chapter 5.  Why is helpful to know what is going on and how to address what is going on?  How did taking the hidden bias assessment help you understand Paradigm Shift #2 in Chapter 7, How Can We Know Bias When We Cant Even See It In Ourselves? 

Finally identify two of the Eight Basic Principles of Organizational Community, Chapter 11, and explain why you believe them to be important.
