Unconscious bias: persistent, unintentional prejudiced behavior that clashes with our consciously held beliefs. We know that it exists, to corrosive and even lethal effect. We see it in medicine, the workplace, education, policing, and beyond. But when it comes to uprooting our prejudices, we still have far to go. Nordell reveals how minds, hearts, and behaviors change. She scrutinizes diversity training, deployed across the land as a corrective but with inconsistent results, and explores what works and why. Biased behavior can change; the approaches outlined here show how we can begin to remake ourselves and our world. -- adapted from jacket… (mer)

This book took awhile to get into, but the second half was more compelling. Much of the book consists of stories of how various organizations and people have succeeded at reducing bias. ( )

I won this in a give-away a long time ago, and neglected to follow up a with a review. My bad, as I really enjoyed it. It's a straightforward account of the state of the science of bias and ways to combat bias. It starts with a thorough discussion of unconscious bias and its pervasive effects throughout society, and then covers the history of efforts to educate and inform to reduce bias. I learned a great deal of the sometimes counter-intuitive findings on education, and ways to improve. I attended an unconscious bias training at my workplace earlier this year and found myself contributing much to the conversation because of this book, and I even got to recommend it to the instructor when she asked.

Note: I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss.

This was quite good. Written by a journalist but super grounded in a whole bunch of social science research. I like the framing of first showing how bias works and then examining some bias-countering practices that have actually worked in areas like education, policing, the workplace, and healthcare. I read this via audio and highlighted key passages in the ARC that I was fortunate enough to receive from LibraryThing. The author narrates and doesn’t necessarily have that pro narrator style, but I enjoyed (might be bc she’s apparently from the very same part of Wisconsin where I grew up, so probably her slight regional accent spoke to my soul. :) There were some really beautiful turns of phrase in this, too, which kind of would catch me off guard, but in a good way.
