Faculty will define and explain the differences between bias and unconscious bias: Bias being a judgment/decision made consciously even with compelling data and information to the contrary, and unconscious bias being a quick and often inaccurate judgment/decision based on limited facts and our own life experiences which gives certain individuals and groups both unearned advantage and unearned disadvantage in the workplace, workforce, and community.
