Diversity Task Force: Inclusivity Tip #2
Implicit and Explicit Stereotypes
What we think about people is oftentimes driven by either implicit or explicit stereotypes. Another way to think about it is either unconscious or conscious thinking about who people are. Project Implicit defines implicit and explicit stereotypes in the following way:
An explicit stereotype is the kind that you deliberately think about and report. An implicit stereotype is one that occurs outside of conscious awareness and control. Even if you say that men and women are equally good at math, it is possible that you associate math with men without knowing it. In this case we would say that you have an implicit math-men stereotype.
