On this episode of “Active Allyship…it’s more than a #hashtag!” … Lisa flies solo with guest Howard Ross, the author of "Everyday Bias: Identifying and Navigating Unconscious Judgements in Our Daily Lives."
Howard Ross is lifelong social justice advocate, and is considered one of the world’s seminal thought leaders on identifying and addressing unconscious bias. Howard has delivered programs in 47 states and over 40 other countries to audiences including Fortune 500 companies, colleges and universities, and major institutions within healthcare, government, and non-profit sectors.
According the Howard J. Ross, to be human is to be biased. Lisa and Howard explore the biases we each carry within us and talk about how unconscious bias impacts our day-to-day lives. The good news? Howard shares ways that we can engage to disengage the impact of their own biases.
After the interview, Sunni and Lisa share a positive story in this weeks "Did You Know."

"Every year, the MacArthur Fellows Program awards its recipients a $625,000 “no strings attached” grant, an investment in a person’s originality, insight, and potential so they may continue to “exercise their own creative instincts for the benefit of human society.” In 2020, nine of the 21 “geniuses” that have been selected are Black."
