We all have biases and blindspots, and some are directed inward towards ourselves as well as externally. It’s not about being a good or bad person, and bias is also embedded at a cultural and systemic level. Develop strategies for noticing and overcoming assumptions at all levels, for connecting with people with different points of view and for being the change you want to create.
Everyone has biases from racial bias to political bias, these biases do not need to divide us. Learn how to foster connection with people who have differing points of view. The opposite of hate is connection.
