The toxic effects of bias make headlines every day: sexual harassment, racial profiling, the pay gap. As humans, we are biased. Yet few of us are willing to admit it. We confidently make snap judgments, but we are shockingly unaware of the impact our assumptions have on those around us. Filmmaker Robin Hauser sets out on a journey to uncover her own hidden biases and explore how unconscious bias impact on all aspects of our daily life. Robin embarks on an investigation into the nature of bias and the science behind it, before travelling across the world to explore cutting-edge research into how it can be mitigated. Is it possible to de-bias our brains or does attempting to do so with technology lead to other problems?
