Sway: Unravelling Unconscious Bias

Pragya Agarwal

Do the roots for prejudice lie in our evolutionary past? What happens in our brains when our biases are activated? How has bias affected technology? If we don’t know about it, are we really responsible for it, and, if so, is there anything we can do to stop it?  Join behavioural scientist, activist and writer Dr Pragya Agarwal as she helps unravel the way our implicit or ‘unintentional’ biases affect the way we communicate and perceive the world, and how they affect our decision making, even in life and death situations.
