What is Implicit and Explicit Bias? How are They Different?

Spend a minute with Scott Lidskin, Westfield High School Teacher, as he starts our conversation on Implicit & Explicit Bias.

Implicit bias is something that is unconscious- you don’t know you are doing it. An explicit bias is a conscious bias you are aware of. An implicit bias can transfer to an explicit bias when you’re consciously aware of your prejudice.  Join us for WEEK 5 of our Parent Series as we help explain how implicit bias and explicit bias occur in our daily lives.
