Understanding How to Confront Stereotypes and Biases

Duration: 5 to 10 minutes.

Answer the following questions and then discuss as a class.

  1. True or False: Confronting stereotypes and biases means speaking up to co-workers or others who use these behaviors, and also means recognizing your own tendencies and confronting your own behavior.
  2. True or False: Once you are aware of a possible bias, it is harder to be open-minded when you meet new people because you are constantly thinking about your bias.

Solution:

  1. True.
  2. False. It is actually easier to confront the issue and try to make a more objective decision once you are aware of your own biases.
