Bias robs individuals of their futures, organizations of talent, science of breakthroughs, and communities of justice. The End of Bias: A Beginning explores how to reduce the unexamined biases that wreak havoc from education and healthcare to policing and the workplace.

Blending rigorous science and compassionate humanity, author Jessica Nordell illuminates the approaches that measurably change people’s behavior to be more fair and just. Through startling stories, rich research, and moving reflection, Nordell will offer a hopeful, achievable vision for becoming better people and for creating the world that is needed.
