Company Reads, a division of Penguin Random House that connects organizations and their employees to dynamic speakers, award-winning books, and exclusive content, has released a resource created to aid teams in discussion on the important topic of unconscious bias in the workplace.
The award-winning social psychologist Jennifer L. Eberhardt, Ph.D. created her book titled Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do with the mission of opening readers’ eyes to their own prejudices, while explaining the science behind bias, leading to long-lasting changes in thinking and behavior. Throughout the book, Eberhardt includes her own stories, practical suggestions for reform, and takes a deep look at what her work as a consultant and researcher has done to improve laboratories, police departments, courtrooms, prisons, boardrooms, and the community.
Company Reads built tools around Eberhardt’s book, including the option to book speaking engagements, downloadable digital resources and discussion guides, and other reflection and actionable solutions, which can be found at their site here. The organization will also be discussing the book all month long, and ask readers to join them in conversation on their LinkedIn and Twitter. Download the discussion guide before diving into the book here.
