Unconscious Bias in Mediation


Have you ever considered how unconscious bias in mediation can significantly influence the process and outcomes of conflict resolution. It refers to the prejudices and stereotypes that operate at a subconscious level, affecting decisions and interactions without the mediator’s awareness. Understanding these biases is crucial for mediators to ensure fair and effective mediation.
