Director/Producer: Robin Hauser
Producers: Robin Hauser, Christie Herring

Description:
The toxic effects of bias make headlines every day: sexual harassment, racial profiling, the pay gap. We confidently make snap judgments, but we are shockingly unaware of the impact our assumptions have on those around us. There is a test that measures unconscious biases: the Harvard-based Implicit Association Test, or IAT. After the filmmaker takes the IAT, she is shocked by her results and embarks on an investigation into the nature of human bias. bias gives voice to neighbors concerned about profiling in their communities, CEOs battling bias in their businesses, and those of us hesitant to admit our own biases.
