Call it intuition or social categorization, we all sort people into groups. Our unconscious biases are simply our natural people preferences. Biologically, we are hard-wired to prefer people who look like us, sound like us and share our interests.
These preferences bypass our normal, rational and logical thinking. We use these processes very effectively, but the categories we use to sort people are not logical, modern, or in the workplace, perhaps even legal.

- What is unconscious bias and what are the possible causes
- A new concept—Selective Attention
- Self-awareness and awareness in action
- Preventative methods in the workplace
