UNCONSCIOUS BIAS 101

WITH LET’S TALK

(Content duration – 4:29)

We all have unconscious biases, but it doesn’t make us bad people, it simply makes us human. In this introductory segment, Glenn introduces the topic of unconscious bias by cleverly relating it to viewers’ initial reactions to him. His questions illustrate how quickly our unconscious biases operate and shape our initial opinions of others. But if our biases are uncommon, how can we manage them? Glenn introduces 9 Tips to Manage Your Unconscious Bias. He highlights Tip 3: Be open (focus less on being right and more on understanding differences); and Tip 5: When you mess up, own it (we all make mistakes and sometimes say or do things that are offensive, most times unintentionally. The key is to admit it and be willing to participate in an open discussion). The clip ends with DITV’s Let’s Talk questions, designed to engage viewers in open dialogue about the clip’s topic and the impact on workplace relationships.
