Infographic Background

Project Implicit's Implicit Association Test (IAT) for unconscious racial bias was taken by 2.5 million people across the UK, the USA and 17 countries in mainland Western Europe between 20013 and 2013.  The IAT is a test designed to help individuals understand their unconscious biases.  The Race IAT tests for implicit or unconscious positive emotional responses to White faces relative to Black faces.  Business in the Community partnered with The University of Manchester's Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE) to analyse this data and create this infographic.
