Here is the blurb:

Our brains use visual, verbal and behavioural clues to categorise others. We do this through a process of rapid categorisation that is both natural and necessary for our survival. However, the downside of rapid categorisation is that our brains often misread the clues of our unconscious judgements and this shifts us from danger detectors to social labelling and stereotyping, leading to high levels of prejudice and discrimination. In a workplace context, bias impacts our recruitment decisions, employee development, impairing diversity and retention rates, as well as promoting a disconnected culture. Therefore, it is vital for organisations to address Unconscious Bias in order to develop and maintain an inclusive workforce.
