Extract from: Rotary International Membership, One Rotary Center, 1560 Sherman Avenue, Evanston, Illinois, USA. Excerpt from ‘Creating an inclusive club culture’
Each of us has lived experiences that shape the sense of who we are and the way we see the world. Because we understand things from our own perspective, we're all biased.
We're often unaware of our own biases, which is why it's called unconscious bias. But drawing on our collective perspectives will make us more effective as a group.

Understanding our identities better helps us see where our biases come from. Here are a couple of ways your club's members can determine what has shaped their perspectives:

Take action:

1.     Ask members to think about their social identities and how those shape their perspectives.

2.     Remind each other of your club's commitment to diversity.
