Unravelling Unconscious Bias

Workshop by Pragya Agarwal

Wednesday, 14 April, 13:00 to 14:30

In this event, Dr Pragya Agarwal discusses the science of how our biases are formed, and how we are all biased. She will discuss how stereotypes are formed, why benevolent stereotypes are harmful, and how these manifest in the form of microaggressions, what the impact of microaggressions are, and why it is so important to address the implicit and subversive forms of biases. Beyond race and gender, Dr Agarwal will also discuss a range of other biases such as age, accent, names, etc, and technology. Dr Agarwal is a behavioral and data scientist, and the author of 'Sway: Unravelling Unconscious Bias' and 'Wish we knew what to say: Talking with children about race' both published last year, and she is the founder of a research think-tank 'The 50 Percent Project'. Her next book (M)OTHERHOOD: On the choices of being a woman is out on 3 June. She hosts the podcasts 'Outside the Boxes' and 'Wish We Knew' to accompany the book of the same name.

Moderation: Cornelia Klocker / Felicia Afriyie
