As someone who teaches equity, diversity, and inclusion for a living, I’m worried about the proliferation of biased behavior in the midst of the ongoing global pandemic.
Because many of us have been sheltering in place for several months — and we’ve been actively encouraged to avoid physical contact with others — the current COVID-19 environment has become the perfect breeding ground for fear, uncertainty, and suspicion of other people, which is exactly what can lead to a rise in bias.
In this video, I explain why in the current moment, with the threat of COVID-19 around us, we might see more people than ever before as a threat, leading to an increase in bias. But I also share how we can overcome our unconscious fears to fight bias during this moment.
