Implicit Bias | Jennefer Witter | TEDxCMSV

Implicit Bias

  • Implicit bias is an unconscious bias rooted in our DNA and influenced by our experiences from a young age.
  • It affects our perceptions and behaviors towards others based on characteristics like race, gender, weight, and language.
  • Unlike racism, implicit bias is unintentional and based on ignorance rather than fear or hatred.
  • There are no laws to control implicit bias, leading to unchecked consequences.

Consequences of Implicit Bias

  • Overweight women lose 6% in income compared to those within the accepted body weight range.
  • Individuals with black-sounding names have to send out 15 resumes to get a response, while those with white-sounding names only need to send out 10.
  • Black-sounding names receive 10% fewer callbacks for job applications compared to white-sounding names.
  • Implicit racial bias in healthcare leads to diagnostic uncertainty and inadequate explanations of health problems for black patients.
  • Black patients often receive inadequate pain management due to the bias against their pain tolerance.

Addressing Implicit Bias

  • Identifying and acknowledging our biases is crucial.
  • The Harvard Implicit Association Test can help individuals understand their biases related to race, gender, and sexuality.
  • Changing our thinking patterns and avoiding jumping to conclusions about individuals can promote a more level playing field and reduce the impact of implicit bias.
  • Implicit bias training in companies can help create a diverse and skilled workforce.

Notable Figures

  • Jennifer Witter: CEO of the Borland Group, discusses implicit bias and its consequences.
  • Dr. J. Marion Sims: Known as the father of modern gynecology, performed gynecological surgeries on enslaved women without anesthesia, claiming they did not feel pain.
  • Dr. Lisa Blackwell: A Harvard-trained physician who experienced poor patient-centered care and inadequate communication from healthcare providers during her medical emergency.
