Bias Inside Us - Event Tile

The Bias Inside Us—an exhibition and community engagement project from the Smithsonian—is an exploration of the social science, psychology and consequences of implicit bias. Bias is an innate human trait; we all have it. Being aware of our bias can help us recognize their influence and impact on our behaviors and worldview. The Bias Inside Us offers an opportunity to learn how to challenge bias in the world through awareness of one’s own bias.

The Bias Inside Us is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. 

Major support is provided by The Otto Bremer Trust.
