In-conversation with Sarah Shaffi, a freelance journalist and writer who writes for Stylist, Phoenix and many other publications, Dr Pragya Agarwal will unravel 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.

As a senior academic at US and UK Universities, following a PhD from the University of Nottingham. She held the prestigious Leverhulme Fellowship.
