Implicit Biases and Their Ramifications

You may not realize it, but biases exist without our even knowing it. We unconsciously form opinions about other people based on factors like race, location, name, and more.

In this episode, Dr. Alan Phan highlights the importance of understanding that it takes time to unlearn biases and that empathy plays a significant role in the process. He discusses his ground-breaking research around biases in the workplace and the challenges that exist in getting hired. Phan also teaches the listener how to recognize biases and gives tips on how to overcome them to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and the world.

Dr. Alan Phan brings a well-developed perspective due to his vastly international experiences both learning and teaching all over the globe. He holds several degrees and certificates including a B.A. in Linguistics from the University of California at Irvine, and a doctorate at the University of Bath, England where he did his doctoral dissertation research on gender and ethnicity of leadership in international schools. He has also held leadership roles in schools in India, Spain, England, Mexico, and Belgium.

Phan is currently the Founding Head of School at Royal Embassy Academy in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and also leads workshops and trainings on identity, microaggressions, and implicit bias.
