¡Palabra!: Unconscious Bias

Unconscious Bias refers to a bias that we are unaware of, and which happens outside of our control. It is a bias that happens automatically and is triggered by our brain making quick judgments and assessments of people and situations, influenced by our background, cultural environment and personal experiences.

El prejuicio inconsciente se refiere a un prejuicio de lo cual no somos conscientes que existe fuera de nuestro control. Es un prejuicio que ocurre automáticamente y se provoca por los juicios y las evaluaciones de personas y situaciones que hace rápidamente el cerebro humano, influenciado por los antecedentes, el entorno cultural y las experiencias personales.
