Pragya Agarwal: Sway, Unravelling Unconscious Bias

Unconscious bias has become a frequently-used term in our vocabulary, but there are still so many myths around it.

For the first time, behavioural scientist, activist and writer Dr Pragya Agarwal unravels the way our implicit or ‘unintentional’ biases affect the way we communicate and perceive the world, and how they affect our decision-making, even in life and death situations.

Combining case studies, personal experience and interviews, underpinned by scientific theories and research, Sway covers a wide range of implicit biases in depth, including ageism, accent bias, sexism and aversive racism and answers questions such as, do the roots for prejudice lie in our evolutionary past? What happens in our brains when our biases are activated? How has bias affected technology? If we don’t know about it, are we really responsible for it, and, if so, is there anything we can do to stop it?

​Dr Pragya Agarwal is a behavioural and data scientist, and a freelance journalist. She is a winner of the Diverse Wisdom award from Hay House and was named as one of the 100 influential women in social enterprise in the UK.
