This assignment looks at our unconscious bias. Each of us has both conscious and unconscious bias. You’ll take one of the assessments through Harvard University’s Implicit project.



Choose one of the assessments (with the exception of Gender-Science IAT, Gender-Career IAT, Presidents IAT, or Weapons IAT). Write a one- to two-page response addressing the following prompts:

1) Describe the assessment you chose to complete

2) React to your own results and its implications

3) Analyze unconscious bias utilizing the readings or outside information

4) Describe how you might apply your newly acquired knowledge of unconscious bias in your current or future profession
