“a bias that happens automatically, is outside of our control and is triggered by our brain making quick judgments and assessments of people and situations, influenced by our background, cultural environment and personal experiences.”
Sylvana Storey In this 2 part series we'll look at five types of bias each of us have and strategies we can use to reduce our bias and increase compassion in our communities.
Instructor: Lori Rothstein brings a host of experiences in community development - from northern Minnesota to Namibia - to Extension's Leadership and Civic Engagement team.
