UW-Green Bay Expo wants people to rethink implicit biases

Green Bay – Stairs built without a wheelchair access plan. Soap dispenser sensors are unable to recognize dark skin. Spiral notebooks are difficult for a left-handed writer to use.

These are some of the implicit biases that a new exhibit at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay aims to show. The exhibition opened on Friday.

The Bias Within Us is an educational exhibit created by the Smithsonian Institution’s traveling exhibition service to help people recognize and challenge their implicit biases. It will be open to the public from Saturday through February 13.

The exhibition consists of six interactive sections that show examples of implicit biases that occur in everyday life, their harmful effects, and how people can rethink assumptions to overcome their own biases.
