The end of bias : a beginning : the science and practice of overcoming unconscious bias

Nordell, Jessica (author.).

Summary

Summary: Unconscious bias: persistent, unintentional prejudiced behavior that clashes with our consciously held beliefs. We know that it exists, to corrosive and even lethal effect. We see it in medicine, the workplace, education, policing, and beyond. But when it comes to uprooting our prejudices, we still have far to go. Nordell reveals how minds, hearts, and behaviors change. She scrutinizes diversity training, deployed across the land as a corrective but with inconsistent results, and explores what works and why. Biased behavior can change; the approaches outlined here show how we can begin to remake ourselves and our world. -- adapted from jacket
