Test Your Implicit Bias Here

Are you biased against women leaders? Take this test to learn the surprising truth.

Most people have unconscious biases that have been shaped by the world around us. Uncovering the biases is an important step to eliminating them. This interactive quiz* — created by AAUW, Project Implicit and Harvard University — will help you identify your implicit biases about women in leadership roles.

*Desktop or laptop computer required. Not compatible on mobile or tablet devices.

Take the test!

Fortunately, studies suggest that it may be possible to reduce bias in our minds and in our workplaces. One study found that systematic consideration of personal judgments can help combat bias in the evaluation of women in leadership positions. Another of university professors indicated that a program of anti-bias education improved the environment in their departments. Knowing about the unconscious associations and connections we hold is the first step toward correcting our biases.
