The End of Bias

with author Jessica Nordell

Click here to RSVP

In The End of Bias, science journalist Jessica Nordell is not looking to shame or excuse behavior. Rather, she is interested in identifying bias, its short and long-term effects, and ways to overcome it. From the workplace, to education, to healthcare and policing, Nordell considers case studies whose data overwhelmingly prove the harm caused by unexamined stereotypes and unconscious bias. Equal parts diagnostic and prescriptive, the book sets itself apart with its solutions-oriented approach. Ultimately, this is a work of optimism, which nonetheless demands serious reflective work on the part of its reader. Join Nordell as she discusses her research, her own engagements with bias, and her vision for a responsible and bias-free society.
