Robin is an award-winning director of documentary films at Finish Line Features. Her most recent film bias challenges us to confront our hidden biases and understand what we risk when we follow our gut. Through exposing her own biases, award-winning documentary filmmaker Robin Hauser  highlights the nature of implicit bias, the grip it holds on our social and professional lives, and what it will take to induce change.

Her exploration into implicit gender and racial bias in artificial intelligence led her to introduce the subject to the TED stage in December 2017. She also presented at TEDx in 2019 on “The Likability Dilemma for Women Leaders.” Robin’s previous film, CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap, premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in 2015, screened at The White House, and caught the attention of the international tech industry and of policy makers and educators around the world.

Robin has been featured in international publications including Forbes, Fortune, The New Yorker, and The Atlantic, and has appeared on Bloomberg TV, CNN, NPR, CNBC, and more. Robin is a diplomat for the American Film Showcase and speaks about unconscious bias, the importance of diversity and inclusion, and on behalf of women’s rights at US Embassies, conferences and corporate headquarters worldwide. She is currently working on $avvy, a film about women and financial wellness: savvy-film.com
