9781520046297: Overcoming Bias: Building Authentic Relationships Across Differences

Everybody's biased-even nice people like you. We all harbor unconscious assumptions about those who are different from us that get in the way of our good intentions and keep us from working together harmoniously and effectively. So in an increasingly diverse and globalized world, what does respecting difference actually require? Overcoming Bias uses vivid stories and fun exercises and activities to help us challenge our presuppositions and become open to encountering people, cultures, and ideas outside our usual comfort zone. This book will provide you with everything you need to understand bias, talk about it with increased fluency, and control and conquer it. In the end, Jana and Freeman's central message is that you are not the problem-but you are the solution.

Book Description:

Bias is real and we all have it, but there is good news: even though bias is part of the human condition, we are not powerless against it. The secret is building authentic, deep relationships across differences.
