Unconscious Bias, Gender and the Workplace: Unconscious biases are preferences that inform our judgements, behaviors and decisions.  Unconscious bias is typically automatic, based on stereotypes, and is triggered by our brain making quick judgements about people. Biases are influenced by our cultural and personal experiences.  Unconscious bias can be particularly problematic when it conflicts with, and therefore undermines, the equity goals organizations are consciously committed to.
