Unconscious bias training

Many studies have confirmed the power of unconscious biases in shaping decisions in almost every aspect of life. Facing the challenge to select the best doctoral researchers from more than a 160 applicants from all over the world, the PIs of the RTG participated in a training seminar to address various forms of unconscious biases and ways to avoid them. The two-hour webinar, offered by Hanna Völkle and Kathrin Mahler Walther of the EAF in Berlin was highly informative and absolutely worth ist time.
