Project Implicit may show you that you have unconscious bias (duh?) and now a new study underway will “research the effects of unconscious racial bias on decision-making and develop strategies to support decision-making based on consciously held American values rather than on racial anxiety and stereotypes.”
The projet’s founder is john powell (this is like the blog version of MTv pop-up videos, with little sidebars–I don’t know john powell, but indeed you can just find a copy of his CV on-line, which is like 20 pages long–he is brilliant) executive director of the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at The Ohio State University (how/why do organizations make the decision to capitalize “The” and include it as a formal part of their name–does it make a strategic difference?).
Not sure if you have unconscious bias? For one week, at every meeting and gathering you go to, notice how people self-select when forming groups. Do people self-segregrate by race or culture? Age? Who do you choose to sit with if you enter a big meeting room, and don’t know anyone? Do they look like you?
