For older adults less familiar with social media or the internet, collaborative education and resource provision in community settings (e.g., Ma et al., 2015) could be effective. Counterevidence for East Asians as a model minority in health is particularly evident in cancer control science5. Cancer has been the leading cause of mortality in Asian Americans since the 2000s6 (Chen et al., 2018). Below we present non-exhaustive examples across the cancer control continuum suggesting that it is erroneous to apply the MMS to Asians, including East Asians, given their vulnerabilities in cancer risk, preventive behaviors, and cancer-related outcomes. Often, data show greater disparities for the LEP, foreign-born, less U.S.-acculturated.

  • Ibram X. Kendi, author of Stamped from the Beginning and How to Be an Antiracist suggests these.
  • For example, onboarding programs can implement reattribution training and belongingness interventions and a few examples were provided.
  • That is, if an evaluation is conducted by more than one supervisor and focuses on behaviors and quantitative metrics of performance, evaluations may be less biased and may not evoke threat (Austin and Villanova, 1992; Bommer et al., 1995).
  • We conducted a second experiment to see if expressions of anger from Black women activated the angry Black woman stereotype in the minds of people observing her.
  • This was true for incorrect, partially correct, and fully correct responses.
  • Although a color-blind policy indicating race does not affect performance or evaluations and employees are valued for their work ethic seems positive, this widely endorsed policy is viewed as exclusionary by minorities (Plaut et al., 2009).

Overall summary risk of bias assessments for each study will be classified as low, moderate, or high based upon the collective risk of bias inherent in each domain and confidence that the results are believable given the study’s limitations. When the two investigators disagree, a third party will be consulted to reconcile the summary judgment. Outcomes in studies assessed as having a high risk of bias will be compared to synthesized evidence as a means of sensitivity analysis. The preliminary risk of bias assessment form is provided in Appendix B. The form will be tested by investigators, with particular attention to project term definitions, using an initial sample of included studies and will be finalized by full team input. As bibliographic database searches are completed for each priority group, we will review the search results for studies relevant to our PICOTS framework and study-specific criteria. The literature set identified at this phase will be examined from a content analysis perspective for emerging themes.

She is also a Media, Culture, and Communication graduate student at New York University, where she is focusing on digital media, culture, and storytelling. She has reported stories on gender rights as a journalist and conducted research on the topics of gender and diversity for non-profits. In order to check our biases at the door, we must first admit that we actually have biases.

Confirmation bias

According to Wern-Yi & Kahl , stereotypes occur in different contexts, where they may either be true or false. In most cases, people have negative views about others because of misleading information (Tavris & Alonsos, 2008). In a managerial perspective, a manager can use stereotypes appropriately to understand why employees behave in a certain way. Moreover, it is essential to also familiarize oneself with the employees’ cultural values and norms to avoid miscommunication and differences. The initiative will, therefore, enhance relationships and performance at the workplace. The first step toward overcoming your implicit biases is to identify them.

Do You Know About Your Hidden Bias? The IAT Can Help.

If each team member speaks a different language, you’ll want to find a common language you can all use so every member can communicate with ease. For example, if a manager assigns a tech-heavy task to a young employee instead of an older one based on the unspoken assumption that younger staff members are better with technology, implicit bias is at play. Unconscious bias can also occur in the classroom; for example, students may marginalize non-native English speakers when choosing work groups, with the unconscious assumption that they may not perform as well as native English-speaking peers. Unconscious biases are malleable-one can take steps to minimize the impact of unconscious bias (Dasgupta, 2013; Dasgupta & Greenwald, 2013). Technical experts must disclose any financial conflicts of interest greater than $10,000 and any other relevant business or professional conflicts of interest. Because of their unique clinical or content expertise, individuals are invited to serve as technical experts and those who present with potential conflicts may be retained. The TOO and the EPC work to balance, manage, or mitigate any potential conflicts of interest identified.

Beyond stereotypes

Although these biases are pervasive, you can reduce their impact with deliberate attention and effort. Being aware of and understanding the different types of biases that exist can help you find ways to combat them. That being said, these biases can lead to skewed judgments and reinforce stereotypes, doing more harm than good for companies when it comes to recruitment and decision-making. Increasing interaction between two groups of people will help increase mutual understanding and fill in any gaps in knowledge of another group’s culture. You might suffer ethnocentrism, stereotypes, and different communication codes.

One good first step is exactly what you are doing now—learn more about the problem. White students at Rutgers University who completed a course on prejudice and conflict became less prejudiced and less stereotypical compared with similar students who did not take the course . It is important to note that the class dealt quite specifically with prejudice and conflict. The real benefit comes from asking difficult questions, not avoiding them. I enjoy “celebrating diversity.” Learning about new cultures, trying new food, and commemorating new holidays broadens the mind and opens us up to new possibilities. But in the absence of dealing with the tough issues of prejudice and stereotyping, it doesn’t usually affect the fundamental ways in which we think about people of other races and cultures. Celebrating diversity is fun and worthwhile, but it’s no substitute for addressing difficult questions head-on.

We will summarize the results into evidence tables and synthesize evidence for each unique population, comparison, and outcome combination. When a comparison is adequately addressed by a previous systematic review of acceptable quality and no new studies are available, we will reiterate the conclusions drawn from that review.

Work Group

Objective Enactive
This online lecture-demonstration unfolds the term ´Poetic Materiality´ within the context of designing and choreographing with Somatic Costumes. Through critiquing and applying the somatic practice of Skinner Releasing Technique, the poetics of philosopher Gaston Bachelard and the materiality of anthropologist Tim Ingold, this talk begins to map poetic and material agencies between bodies-costumes within the design-performance encounter.

Artist Talk

Objective Enactive

This talk will focus on the first outcome of Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, a tripartite site-specific, where I am pursuing a speculative exploration of the ecology of the city, between the urban and the biological, unfolding its layers and materiality of time. The talk will end in a conversation between fellow researchers and artists in the collaborative project Urban Ecologies, where Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, is generated from.


Polyvocal Tongue The presentation will focus on relational ethics and polyvocality in performative text. It will also explore the use of plural languages in a play, looking at how a polylingual praxis can open up new aesthetic potential in playwrighting and in artistic research in general.


TRANSPOSITIONS— JAR, Mette Edvardsen and modular diaries At the start, the idea for an artistic research conversation with Mette Edvardsen did not spring out of the topics shortlisted for the conference—hospitality, vulnerability and care—but a book that she had co-edited, and dropped in my shelf.

Panel Discussion

The Ethics of Vulnerability and Artistic Research

Any ethical framework must take account of the vulnerability of the human condition. This is significant in all creative endeavours – especially in artistic practice and the teaching of it – since the very act of creating something and putting it out into the world is an expression of vulnerability.
