The Bias Inside Us

Northwest-RenoFacebook-cover-photo-template_202305082.jpg

February 10–March 10, 2024 at the Northwest Reno Library

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.
