Take an online quiz from Harvard’s “Project Implicit”. Just click on “Take a Test” on the bottom of this page: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/
Why it is important:
Everyone has subconscious and unintentional biases about other people. Taking this quiz can help you learn what about your own biases. Once you understand your implicit bias, you can work to check yourself and counteract any bias you may have.
