That’s the tricky thing about blind spots – we don’t know if we have them and we aren’t aware of how they may be limiting us and our ability to connect with the people around us. By acknowledging that blind spots exist and being aware of what they are, you can challenge them, change them and inspire others around you to do the same.
Challenging blind spots isn’t easy to do because many people, including you, may not be aware of them. Make a commitment to educate yourself so you are aware of your own potential blind spots. This will better equip you to help others recognise and understand potential blind spots. This type of interaction will make a lasting impact and boost additional support for the global gender equality movement. This is not a one-time effort, and it requires a lot of practice. But if you are up for it, you can help drive societal change.
By being aware of your own potential blind spots, you can make a difference by challenging them and changing how you act when you are faced with them.
