20/20 Sight Line: Harvard Implicit Association: Explore Your Innate Biases
As stated on the Harvard University website, “Project Implicit is a non-profit organization and international collaboration between researchers who are interested in implicit social cognition – thoughts and feelings outside of conscious awareness and control. The goal of the organization is to educate the public about hidden biases and to provide a virtual laboratory for collecting data on the Internet.” We have found the Implicit Association Test to be an eye-opening tool that will change the way you think about your attitudes and beliefs towards those who are different. Use this link to explore a part of your core character that you never knew existed.
