Sway – Why We Make Judgements

Available to view from 2pm, Saturday 19th September 2020

Have you ever been told to smile more, been teased about your accent, or had your name pronounced incorrectly? If so, you’ve probably already faced bias. The behavioural scientist and activist reveals how we might like to believe that we are all fair-minded, but we all carry unconscious biases, which results, at worst, in racism and gender inequality. She’ll explain how these affect the way we communicate and perceive the world, and our decision-making, even in life and death situations.
