We all have biases despite our best intentions because implicit bias lives deep in our subconscious. It permeates just about every aspect of life; nonetheless, the impact of our implicit bias on others significantly depends on our social and professional roles in society.
Biases held by police officers, physicians, prosecutors, and criminal court judges can have a detrimental impact on a person's life. Biases held by teachers and school administrators affect educational practices and student outcomes. For any sector, whether that be nonprofit, philanthropy, government, or business, implicit biases influence the priorities and policies implemented.
Implicit bias impacts how community partners, funders, and grantmaking organizations distribute funding. For this reason, we must understand how implicit bias works, its causes, consequences, and potential solutions.
