Professor Jennifer Eberhardt is a Stanford Social Psychologist and one of the world's leading experts on racial bias. InBiased, she draws on groundbreaking research to demonstrate that even without explicit racism, our unconscious biases powerfully shape our behaviour leading to racial disparities in all sectors of society.
In a global society of increased migration and social movement, Biasedhighlights the social problems that arise when different races meet, and demonstrates the stubbornly persistent role of racial bias in a world where economic and geographic realities are rapidly changing.
Perhaps more importantly, Biasednot only describes one of the most fundamental problems of our age, but puts forward solutions. Unconscious bias is a common human condition to be recognised and managed, not a sin to be punished. Only through understanding comes change.
