Facebook will train employees to identify and check their political leanings, the company’s latest step to quell concerns over the treatment of conservative viewpoints on the social network.

Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said that Facebook plans to add a section on “political bias,” to its class on “managing bias.” All Facebook executives and many employees have taken the class, which focuses on identifying and neutralizing racial, age, gender and other types of bias, Sandberg said during a discussion at the American Enterprise Institute.
