Discussions of unconscious bias often focus on the problem, not solutions. How do we eradicate the unexamined prejudices that clash with our values and wreak havoc across medicine, the workplace, education, policing, and beyond?
To find answers, award-winning journalist and writer Jessica Nordell undertook a global quest for solutions. THE END OF BIAS—A Beginning is the culmination of 15 years of reporting on discrimination and its solutions. In it, she explores how bias ends: the police unit in California where new incentives improved police behavior, the media intervention that reduced religious intolerance in France, the checklist used by doctors that removed bias from medical treatment, the daily encounters that dissolve stereotypes and restore trust.
Weaving gripping stories with scientific research and exquisite writing, Nordell paints riveting portraits of those leading change and interrogates her own biases with candor. Called “capacious” by the New York Times, “virtuoso” by Publishers Weekly and “rousing” by the Guardian, Nordell offers a hopeful, achievable vision: we can repair our world. The approaches illuminated here point the way.
