dcsimg About The Bias Inside Us
Skip to main content


The Smithsonian Institution is committed to leading and encouraging civil dialogue on important issues facing our nation. The Bias Inside Us is a community engagement project and exhibition. Our goal is to help people understand and counter their implicit biases and build capacity in communities through resources to convene dialogue that will increase empathy and create more inclusive schools, workplaces and communities. The project includes a 1,500 sq. ft. exhibition on display for four weeks in each community, free of charge, and is designed to be the centerpiece of local activities. The exhibition allows for in-depth programming with time for surrounding communities to access the exhibition and its resources.

The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) has been sharing the wealth of Smithsonian collections and research programs with millions of people outside Washington, D.C., for more than 65 years. SITES connects Americans to their shared cultural heritage through a wide range of exhibitions about art, science and history, which are shown wherever people live, work and play.
