Pragya Agarwal


Event Details

Have you ever been told to smile more, been teased about your accent, or had your name pronounced incorrectly? If so, you’ve probably already faced bias in your everyday life.

This talk explores 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.

Behavioural scientist Pragya Agarwal combines case studies, personal experience, interviews and real world stories underpinned by scientific theories and research, to cover a wide range of implicit biases in depth.

Discounted tickets are available to Members and Patrons of the Ri. Find out more about how to join our community.

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm.
