Behind the MUPC 2015 Keynote:Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People
Mahzarin Banaji, Ph.D., Harvard University
We think that we know our own minds and that we are able to assess others in a fair and accurate way. Dr. Banaji will challenge these self-perceptions during her talk as she explores the hidden biases we all carry from a lifetime of exposure to cultural attitudes about age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, social class, sexuality, disability status, and nationality. In particular, Dr. Banaji will explain how these biases shape our likes and dislikes and our judgments about the character, abilities, and potential of other people; how biases can be revealed using the Implicit Association Test, a method that has revolutionized the way scientists are learning about the human mind; and critically, how well-meaning people may better align their behavior with their good intentions.
