Abstract: 

 

This is a talk in the graduate seminar MTH 607: Building Inclusive, Equitable, Respectful and Welcoming Mathematical Communities.

 The term "implicit bias" is becoming more and more common in public discourse. What does it actually mean? How does it differ from other forms of bias, and how might it affect us, both professionally and personally? What are the mechanisms that allow bias to exist when fair-minded people are trying to be equitable, and what can we do to mitigate these risks? This is an abbreviated version of the introduction to implicit bias that is one of the foundations of OSU's Search Advocate program.
