There are numerous practical reasons to not ignore implicit bias. The first is employee disengagement.
Design thinking has been around since at least the 1960s, and initially, its focus was in areas such as architecture, graphic design and industrial design, to produce physical products. But today, design thinking is used nearly everywhere. You can try it, too.
