Witty looks into over 40 different diversity dimensions, and for each category, you have the option to turn it on or off.

We provide examples for every category to help you understand the biases they contain.  Simply hover over the red icon and check them out. You can also click on the title, e.g. Ancestry, to get a deeper insight into what lies behind this category.

Choose your level

  • With the free plan Witty Free, you can choose for each category to switch it on or off. Categories under Slurs + hate speech are always enabled.
  • With the paying plan Witty Teams, you can choose from three levels of proficiency for many categories: off, basic, and advanced. By default, every category is set to the basic level, and we recommend to start like this.

  • To understand what that means, let's have a look at the category vision. On a basic level the phrase "the one eyed among the blind" would be highlighted. When the advanced biases are switched on, even subtle unconscious biases like the phrase "See you later" will be highlighted.
  • We recommend to choose the Basic level at the beginning


In the future, we will provide a separate example for advanced and basic levels.

Mandatory or not?

As an administrator, you can choose for each group if these settings are mandatory for all team members or if they are only recommendations that can be freely adapted by the team's users.
