Summary Implicit bias leads us to discriminate on the basis of race, gender, age, body type and a host of other factors. It robs organizations of talent, science of breakthroughs, art of wisdom, 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 to overcome our biases and end unconscious discrimination. In this landmark book, Nordell meets the people and organisations whose discoveries are set to change the world, and examines how we might begin to eliminate the biases that have settled in our societies, and even in our own minds.
