Implicit bias affects us all, every day of our lives. But it can be overcome.

Here's how we begin to change our minds.

Implicit bias leads us to discriminate on the basis of race, gender, age, body type anda host of other factors. It robs organizations of talent, science of breakthroughs, art ofwisdom, politics of insight, individuals of their futures, and communities of justice.

But implicit bias is a problem that can be solved. For the past thirty years, scientists,psychologists, teachers and entrepreneurs have been coming up with ways toovercome our biases and end unconscious discrimination.

In this landmark book, Nordell meets the people and organisations whose discoveriesare set to change the world, and examines how we might begin to eliminate the biasesthat have settled in our societies, and even in our own minds.

Jessica Nordell is a journalist, award-winning radio producer and writer who studied at Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and now lives in Minneapolis.

Reviews for The End of Bias: How We Change Our Minds

Despite revolutions in our understanding of bias, we're still much better at documenting the problem than solving it. When it comes to prevention and cure, Jessica Nordell's powerful book is a breakthrough. With state-of-the-art science and gripping narratives, she reveals steps what individuals, groups, and institutions can take to fight prejudice -- Adam Grant, author of Think Again In an age of snap judgements and empty moralizing, The End of Bias is a lifeboat. Jessica Nordell accompanies her incredible depth of research with the kind of attention to nuance, self-examination, and genuine compassion that marks the difference between information and wisdom. This book will not just want to make you be a better person - it will convince you that others can be too -- Jenny Odell, author of How To Do Nothing Full of evidence-based interventions, The End of Bias demonstrates that change is possible. In need of some hope? Start here! -- Beverly Daniel Tatum, bestselling author of Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? and Other Conversations About Race
