Bias Incident Resources

We all have bias but where problems often arise is when our biases lead to treating an individual or group of people differently. Bias may eventually lead to acts of discrimination and it is best to identify bias early in order to prevent further harm or illegal actions from occurring.

Harper College defines Bias Incidents as:

Acts of conduct, speech, or expression that adversely impacts individuals and groups based on age, citizenship, disability, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, geographic origin, language, marital status, pregnancy and/or parenting status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, military status, or socioeconomic status, etc.
