Every second our brains receive millions of bits of information. But we can only consciously process about 40 of those bits. Those other bits result in people making decisions based on learned stereotypes, our background, environment and personal experiences. You might know this as “Unconscious Bias.” While everyone has it, there is a price to be paid for unconscious bias if it is not controlled or corrected.
Our unconscious thoughts impact our organizations every day in ways we probably don’t even realize. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
We have the power to discover and leverage the true value of those around us and to help others do the same. But it takes more than good intentions. It takes action.

Many people don’t intervene because they fear judgment or retribution.
Being an ally means supporting the “others.” Being an advocate means speaking up when nobody is watching. It means speaking up because it’s the right thing to do. It means taking action and not just standing by in the face of judgment or retribution. It means standing up, speaking up, and acting up.
