Let’s talk about bias

by Samah,

In Ethical Leadership in an Era of Complexity and Digital Change we note that:

Cuban-French author Anaïs Nin said, “We see things not as they are, but as we are.” As PAs, we are committed to being objective and acting with integrity, but our ability to do so is challenged by unconscious biases such as groupthink and confirmation bias. Biases at an individual level can cloud our judgment and threaten our ability to apply fundamental ethical principles consistent with the profession’s commitment to the public interest.

Harvard’s Implicit Association Test (IAT) is an interesting tool to help us uncover unconscious biases and examine them more closely. 

Once you’ve tried one or more of the IATs, tell us what you think. Did you find them useful? What did you learn?
