A STUDENT’S PERSPECTIVE
“As a young person who has worked on a number of teams for political causes and academic projects, I felt that the Un-Bias Guide for Educators illuminated the prevalence of bias in interactions and the importance of recognizing it. The Guide begins with exercises to identify personal biases and then progresses to exercises to understand others’ biases through a powerful lens: storytelling. The ultimate effect of this guide is to develop empathy, a trait at the core of effective teams that is crucial to solving problems and addressing the impasses that teams face because of unrecognized biases.”
