What more we can do with our biases?
Unfortunately biases will always be with us
Yes there is no doubt about it that biases will continue to prevail among ourselves, even if the societal paradigm shift make us believe that unconscious bias is the obnoxious evil weed that we need to pluck out of our mind and give ourselves hope and positivity in every situation that arises while we are at work. Widen your work circle and even if you bias then take responsibility for the same. As generally there is a saying that do not mix office with your home, you may take this habit along with you at your residence too as the tranquility starts prevailing where you keep your self unbiased to a very large extent. For instance, if someone is a programmer then generally the reporting bosses expect good programming skills from the same, while on the other hand there might be someone working at your work place who have multiple skills and executes them at one’s ease then nobody at the workplace should keep the negativity at the pearl of one’s benevolent mind. The brain of everyone at the workplace should perceive this multi skilled employee as only a exception that sometimes emerges during the hiring process, and they should in fact take this fact positively and try to submerge within the feeling that they are lucky to have that person at their workplace. They should also take into consideration that there might be countless struggles and hardships that this multi skilled person might be facing even if there is no sign of struggle on one’s face. Therefore before jumping to any decision or conclusion try to take all facts into consideration and perceive only — the positive part of it to start with.
