Video Conference: Unconscious Bias
In the course of our lives, we as humans develop a picture of the world. This includes ideas about women and men. Sometimes it becomes clear pretty quickly, that these conceptions aren’t true for everyone. But some opinions are rooted so deeply that we don’t notice that they are in fact generalisations.
One can see this especially clearly in the context of job interviews. Ideas about how a manager or a researcher or someone looking after young children should look influence how positions are filled.
Can we change that?
Kathrin Mahler Walther from EAF Berlin will speak with participants about this question and the power of unconscious ideas.
