The UNtold Story™ Bias in Action
Bias, Stereotypes & Diversity Dynamics
Biases and societal stereotypes can influence our perception, judgment, language and actions. We may not be aware that we are engaging in behavior that may be offensive. Being aware of common stereotypes and biases (both hidden and explicit) can help you challenge negative assumptions about others. At the end of the day, it always comes down to one word… “respect.” Be sure to check your filters and look for ways to be inclusive and respectful.
