DescriptionYou probably don't even know you have biases. The problem is that biases are unconscious. As a result, you may be unaware of some of the reasons underlying your actions and reactions. According to Howard J. Ross, author of "Everyday Bias," bias is "far from simply being malicious prejudgments of others and situations." It influences the core of decision making abilities in how we interact within our very own communities. As an introductory workshop to Building an Inclusive Community, we're going to take a look at defining bias, identifying personal and potential biases, and consider the effects of biases in the workplace as well as within the Baylor community.
