How do we ensure discrimination is never something we inadvertently promote?…

We need to challenge our own beliefs, assumptions & actions, in order to meaningfully value the individuality & worth of all human beings.

To help us understand each other, human beings develop the ability to make thousands of micro assumptions about the way people look, sound, behave and live their lives. These assumptions can be incredibly helpful and are perfectly natural in navigating our world, however, they aren’t always accurate, can lead us into stereotyping and unconscious bias.

This seems like a simple notion, but how readily do we explore the beliefs we hold, and truly challenge the assumptions that our beliefs lead us to make?

It is enormously beneficial for all of us to look beyond our cursory self-reflections, and truly tune in to understanding what underpins the quick judgments and assessments of people we make. This deeper level of self-awareness helps us ensure that discrimination is never something we inadvertently promote.

At TWBC we believe that every single action can add value, and that we need to mindfully do our part. In this scenario that means not only challenging others, but even more importantly, challenging our own beliefs, assumptions and actions, in order to meaningfully value the individuality and worth of all human beings.
