Humans are biased. Our brains are hard-wired to look for patterns and categorize things – a vital survival skill early in our evolutionary history.
While seeing patterns and creating categories have their uses, they can also make us biased in ways we might not always be aware of. Recognizing these biases exist can help us interrupt those habits of thought and expand our views.
Use the resources below to learn more about bias and its real-world impacts.
