You may not realize it, but biases exist without our even knowing it. We unconsciously form opinions about other people based on factors like race, location, name, and more.

In this episode, Dr. Alan Phan highlights the importance of understanding that it takes time to unlearn biases and that empathy plays a significant role in the process. He discusses his ground-breaking research around biases in the workplace and the challenges that exist in getting hired. Phan also teaches the listener how to recognize biases and gives tips on how to overcome them to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and the world.

Educators of color and LGBTQIA+ educators can find additional resources, as well as recruitment and mentorship opportunities at thediversityfair.org.
