A division of one of the country’s largest archives of cultural and historical items is partnering with UW-Green Bay to facilitate community conservations around bigotry and social sciences.The Bias Inside Us, a traveling, community engagement project developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Services (SITES) and UW-Green Bay’s Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs Office (MESA) and the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, is a hands-on exhibit where visitors can unpack implicit human biases. Created by psychologists Mahzarin R. Banaji of Harvard University and Anthony G. Greenwald, professor emeritus at the University of Washington, the exhibit is informed by the duo’s 2013 book Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People, which explores gender, race, social class and disability biases in different cultures.“We’re kind of in one of these moments in time where I think there’s a critical awareness of the fact that ‘Oh, we’ve got some systemic problems that are really being driven by bias,” Weidner Center Executive and Artistic Director Kelli Strickland said.The exhibition is divided into six sections, which include topics such as The Science of Bias, Bias in Real Life, Serious Consequences—Bias is All Around Us, #RetrainYourBrain and Personal Reflection.
