It's not easy to admit your flaws, but I'll do it right here. I am biased.
I have positive biases.
I have negative biases.
I have biases I don't know.
It's up to me, and all of us, to be aware of the biases we have and to understand how they impact and affect our interactions. These biases color our decisions based on many factors including where someone went to school, clothing, tattoos, jewelry, speech patterns, and so on.
It's also important to understand that unconscious bias does not equal bigotry, which is when you intentionally have an intolerance towards those you do not agree with or who are different from you.
If you'd like an interactive workshop for your employees or leaders on recognizing our unconscious biases and how to overcome them when interviewing, posting for jobs, promoting, rewarding, etc. contact me for more details: www.kaiovate.com/contact-me.html
