As a grassroot women and girls advocate whose meeting people of various backgrounds and experiences is inevitable. I had to draw from personal experience stragegies to overcoming implicit bias as follow:
I resolved to spending time defining people on a more personal and unique individual level than focusing on stereotyping. Anytime I recognise that my response to people might be rooted in bias, I make effort to consciously adjust my response. I occasionally take time to reflect on potential bias and enable me consciously replace them with positive attitudes towards people. I am always putting effort seeing things from other people's point of view. I do ask myself "what would be my response if I were in same position with the people I treat them with bias?" Most importantly, I spend my very first moment with people learning to about them which help me in understanding how to approach them.
Finally, I learnt that I need to treat others they way I would like to be treated.
