In the Understanding & Managing Bias toolkit, we explore bias, where it comes from, how we can recognize our own biases, and how we can begin our journey to unlearn.
This step-by-step toolkit serves as an accessible primer on the relationship between empathy and bias. Immediately upon downloading, you'll get access to a 22 page toolkit and two large-format posters.
Inside, you will find easy-to-understand instructions, get access to 7 exercises, and access to heaps of extra resources to get you started... Here's a look at what you can expect to find:
- Exercises to breakdown conscious goals, and reflect on your own biases
- Mindfulness exercises
- An activity to map and challenge the influences of your work
- A curated list of additional readings and activities
- A template for making commitments to action
Seriously, pay-what-you-want! Donations help support our mission to keep these tools available for free. Anything helps! If you are able to donate, we recommend a donation of $10-15 for this toolkit.
We have some perks!
Donate $50, and we’ll set up a 1:1 30 minute Zoom call between you and Ale Wiecek, Chief Empathy Officer & Founder at Sqr One for a Bias Jam in which she will help coach you on your empathy, and provide you with the next steps you need to take things to the next level.
Donate $100, and we’ll set up an hour-long Zoom call between you and Ale! During this call, she'll coach you through the toolkit as a whole. Bring as many people as you'd like!
Understanding & Managing Bias was created in a collaboration between Sqr One, an Australian innovation consultancy specializing in life and career innovation, and verynice, a US-based design strategy practice specializing in brand strategy, user experience design, and strategic foresight. The toolkit is designed as a “grab bag” of activities and insights, and is meant to be completed on your own, but you are welcome to share with a friend!
