  4. What can I do to consciously change my bias language?

      This is an area that speaks to my value system, yet I continue to need to be more conscious of the words coming out of my mouth! I am better in print when I can proof myself 😉 We have a long way to go in uncovering our biases and working towards equality. Thank you for covering this subject.

        So appreciate your comment Susan… over dinner tonight, my husband and I caught ourselves. It is a learned behaviour. Reminding ourselves helps.
