New Resources - September 2014

Racial Equity Tools is pleased to announce a new section of resources focused on Implicit Bias in the ACT tab. Please take a moment and check out the new resources in this section, and throughout the site. 

Implicit bias is a concept based on an emerging body of cognitive and neural research. It identifies ways in which unconscious patterns people inevitably develop in their brains to organize information actually “affect individuals’ attitudes and actions, thus creating real-world implications, even though individuals may not even be aware that those biases exist within themselves.”
