Here "individual bias" just means there is a particular person who is acting on their biases. The study found that the interaction between individuals motivated to act in a bias way (aka jerks) and organizations that allow or foster that kind of behavior resulted in organizations that effectively discriminate.

Answer choice C says that it is only organizational culture that matters, and not the presence or absence of individuals ready to act on stereotypes.
