  34. 34. Implicit Bias  An Implicit Bias is a preference for OR against a person or group of people that operate at the subconscious level. We are NOT aware that we have them.  Triggered automatically through rapid association of people/groups/objects and our attitudes AND stereotypes about them.  Run contrary to our stated beliefs and attitudes. We can say that we believe in equity (and truly believe it). But then behave in ways that are biased and discriminatory. Rosetta Eun Ryong Lee (http://tiny.cc/rosettalee)
