							Everybody's biased—even nice people like you. We all harbor unconscious assumptions about those who are different from us that get in the way of our good intentions and keep us from working together harmoniously and effectively. So in an increasingly diverse and globalized world, what does respecting difference actually require? Overcoming Bias uses vivid stories and fun exercises and activities to help us challenge our presuppositions and become open to encountering people, cultures, and ideas outside our usual comfort zone. This book will provide you with everything you need to understand bias, talk about it with increased fluency, and control and conquer it. In the end, Jana and Freeman's central message is that you are not the problem—but you are the solution.

“Tiffany Jana and Matthew Freeman take a tough issue that almost immediately raises everyone's defenses and break it down in simple and practical ways. Just as we want to improve our appearance, attitude, or prospects for success, we can improve our ability to engage with others without the blinders of bias blocking our path.” - Senator Tim Kaine

“This wonderful book encouraged me to look inside and be honest about biases that I didn't even realize I had. With all the discord in the world today, this is the right message at the right time.” - Helayne Spivak, Director, Virginia Commonwealth University Brandcenter
