Breaking the Unconscious Bias

We were invited to host a Guest Lecture / Workshop at Kurukshetra, the tech-fest organized annually by the Students of the College of Engineering, Guindy, under the Anna University. We looked at the theme of breaking unconscious bias and building equality through conscious thinking and critical reasoning. We explored themes of sex-and-gender, intersectionality and how gender goes beyond the binary. We also had a fun activity where we got the students to deconstruct stereotypical thinking, and had them go beyond the ordinary, to dig deeper and to examine why they interact with others in the way that they do. We had close to a hundred students attending the event, and with rapt attention and great inputs, we got to learn a lot in the process!
