Human beings are hardwired to stereotype. Very often these deep-rooted and implicit biases end up blinding us to opportunities and stop us from achieving our true potential in life. Scientist, educator, and entrepreneur Dr. Sarita Menon shows how recognizing these biases in ourselves can empower us to rise above them and ensure that we raise children, especially young girls, who do the same. Dr. Sarita Menon, driven by a mission to see better representation of women in STEM, launched international children’s science magazine Smore in 2017. Her purpose and passion lie in building scientific literacy skills in children and preparing them for a future of seen and unseen challenges. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx .
