It is automatic for humans to categorize individuals and groups to help us make sense of the world. Micro inequities and unconscious bias include mental shortcuts to categorize people we are unfamiliar with into specific groups. Often those groups are labeled “good” or “bad”. The brain is hard-wired to create these groups and from an evolutionary standpoint, this hard-wiring helped us determine what was safe and what meant danger. Once assigned to the group, we attribute stereotypes that we associate with that group. Unconscious bias, implicit bias, is different from conscious bias (explicit bias) that most of us associate with overt prejudice such as racism, sexism and other forms of intolerance.
