What are three examples of occurrences of bias in business writing? Identify two strategies you consider important to use when working to reduce bias in business writing.
Response :
One of the three examples of bias in business writing would be gender bias. This occurs when sexism creeps into an article, project or report. In order to reduce gender bias in business writing, business people must make a point of eliminating any derogatory language that demeans one gender, sometimes this can be subtle as calling women "girls" or "ladies". Keeping the tone of business writing very politically correct and gender neutral is often the best strategy for reducing bias and creating a more inclusive business document.
