Buckeye Bias Busters Collaboration

Posted: April 26, 2018

Ohio State ADVANCE recently collaborated with the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) to create Buckeye Bias Busters, a workshop to examine implicit bias and offer action-based strategies for interrupting bias in technology spaces.

Buckeye Bias Busters evolved out of a train-the-trainer ADVANCE team members, Mary Juhas and Nicole Nieto, attended hosted by Google and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). Bias Busters@CMU is modeled on Google’s Bias Busting@Work program and was developed in concert with Google. The program was piloted in the School of Computer Science at CMU to engage with issues of bias, diversity and inclusion and is now widely facilitated across the university.

ADVANCE and the OCIO collaborated to create their own unique spin on this program. The training is currently being piloted with the OCIO. For more information, please email Nicole Nieto, nieto.12@osu.edu.
