sylvia martinez's insight:

Amazing quote - "Most concerningly, a study from Yale researchers shows that perceiving yourself as objective is actually correlated with showing even more bias."

It will be perceived as unfair and harsh, with bounceback attitudes that actually strengthen biases (“women are too touchy - and now Joe lost his job”). The only thing I’ve seen work is to address ALL instances of sexist or racist behavior and language immediately and with fair consequences.
