How do our implicit or 'unintentional' biases affect the way we communicate and perceive the world and how do they affect our decision-making?
Pragya's book "Sway" is available now: https://geni.us/EKb6JA
Pragya will discuss how bias is playing a role during the current pandemic and how will become an even more important issue in post-covid world. She combines case studies, personal experience, interviews and real world stories underpinned by scientific theories and research, to cover a wide range of implicit biases.
