Implicit bias plays a big role in how we collectively go about our lives.  It can shape personal viewpoints, public policy, and it often creates inequities that limit access to opportunity.  In this week’s, “Washtenaw United,” WEMU’s David Fair explores these issues with the incoming board chair of the United Way of Washtenaw County, Yodit Mesfin Johnson.
