The Bias Inside Us
Bias lives inside all of us. It feeds our natural need to belong and feel safe. But when bias is left unchecked it can grow into beliefs and behaviors that can become harmful. The posters featured in this exhibit snapshot the science of bias. The research helps us understand how bias comes from our brains, minds, and cultures, and how we can handle it.
