Who we are

BiasSync CEO

A letter from our CEO.

We’re optimists. We recognize that everybody is biased -- it’s just part of the human condition. But that doesn’t make us bad people. We believe that helping people become conscious of their unconscious biases lets them make more informed daily decisions. More accurate. More objective. More equitable. We started BiasSync to help businesses create more fair and respectful work environments. And we believe that assisting individuals to learn more about themselves helps make us all better humans.
