We live in an increasingly complex world. We will join you every day innumerable information bombarded. In order to remain able to act here, our brain tries to filter out the most important information and to interpret. To do this, we use categories, stereotypes and memories to to make the world "tradable" for us. These habits of our thinking are extremely efficient. Nevertheless, they lead to unconscious biases that arise lead to erroneous unconscious prejudices and decisions.
Unconscious biases have a significant impact on collaboration with other people. This has many consequences: we underestimate or overestimate the competence of people, prefer people who are similar to us and let the group influence us. Talents get overlooked, people promoted who are not necessarily best suited for this position and misjudged needs. Examples of relevant fields of action are: Project staffing, assessment procedures, recruitment, team culture and interaction commonality. If scientists are sensitized to unconscious bias, then strengthen their decision-making and leadership skills. You learn yourself better reflect, so that decisions are more unprejudiced, objective and can be made more efficiently
