INCLUSION & THE FUNDING GAP
Informing and opening our mind to what is happening that creates the funding gap.
Individual actions to help create an inclusive environment for all to succeed.
Insights & no blame,
I'm biased too
I was so surprised at my own bias, I researched where they came from.
The curiosity of how, even as a life-long campaigner for equality, some of my own thoughts or reactions were and continue to be biased.
I know when I'm biased, I'm the one missing out on seeing something new. And that was my incentive, to understand how the mind works and what I can do positively to be less biased in my reactions and actions.
I'd like to help you find your incentive and your way how.
