Some experts say there are more than 150 various implicit biases out there. This is due to the fact that our brains can consciously process 40 pieces of information per second — while we unconsciously process 11 million pieces. Implicit bias is present when people unconsciously hold attitudes toward others or associate stereotypes with them even when those biases are contrary their conscious beliefs - even without their realizing that it is happening. Implicit Social Cognition, implicit bias in the workplace refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. If we are time and again harboring negative stereotypes about others without consciously realizing that we are doing so, can undermine the entire culture of a business. If the business goal is to become more diverse and this is one of the hiring manager’s unconscious biases against hiring outside his race,

reaching the goal of diversity will be a problem for the entire company.
