A free Student to World online course from Global Nomads Group

Overcoming Bias

Learn how people form biases, how they can overcome them, and how they can help others do the same

Youth explore how they internalize and form biases and how they can work to overcome such biases. Through activities, media resources, and authentic global youth stories, youth learn to reflect on their own assumptions, explore the biases they encounter in their communities and in the media, and create an action plan for addressing such biases in themselves and others.

Global Nomads Group leverages the power of storytelling to promote empathy and bring social issues to life through day-to-day realities. Read real, impactful, stories from youth participants around the world that reveal deep truths about global issues. Then youth can enhance the conversation by sharing their own stories with fellow Student to World users and participate in moderated live conversations.
