Wow, that's a great question. That is not my specific area of expertise, and it's something I hesitate to give prescriptions for. The work of confronting our own prejudices can be really difficult, painful work, and I think there are a lot of resources out there to help with it, but I'm not sure I could recommend any with confidence.

What I will say is that I think the more you get in the habit of acknowledging your biases, the easier it gets, and the more empowering it is.

I see the work of identifying my own privilege and bias as some of the most self-actualizing work I can do, because it lets me make choices based on the person I want to be.
