Unintentional bias is one of the great social problems of our time; its effects are corrosive, even lethal. But it can be overcome. Here's how.

Drawing on ten years of immersion in the topic, Nordell digs into the cognitive science and social psychology that underpin efforts to eliminate bias, meets the people working to end it, and reveals what really works, and what doesn't. Path-breaking, inspiring, indispensable, with clarity and humanity this book lights the way forward.
