Farewell Blog from DifferenceWORKS

With a resurgence of Black Lives Matter, continued focus on the Me Too movement, and changes in how we define and see “gender,” I felt I would need to apologize for writing about garden variety gender bias and discrimination. So I didn’t. This is the final blog for DifferenceWORKS. Thanks to all who read some of my 276 blogs. I wish great success to those still working for equity and inclusion.

Privilege and Bias: Awareness First

The story in Jodi Picoult’s new novel validates the premise of my work – that the first step in reducing bias and its impact on others is to become aware of our own bias. My emotional reaction to the story confirmed that I still feel called to find more and better ways to help reduce unconscious bias.
