The National Science Foundation is spending nearly $200,000 on an “implicit bias” conference.
The conference will gather “leading experts on racism and prejudice” to write a report on how to make unconscious bias training, which assumes that “everyone is a little bit racist or sexist,” more effective.
“This project brings together experts on prejudice and discrimination to have a deep discussion and write up a report to understand what various measures of bias represent and best ways to measure implicit bias,” according to the grantfor the project. “During the past century, racial attitudes in America have been radically transformed.
