Implicit biases are unconscious associations that can affect the way that we evaluate and interact with people. Explaining the significance of implicit bias, Professor Saul said: “Implicit biases can, for example, lead assessors to rate a CV as less impressive if it has a woman’s rather than a man’s name at the top of it. Stereotype threat can cause a woman to under perform in high-stakes situations when she is one of very few women in the room.”
