As I opened this book, I was immediately captured by the science element of it. Dr. Eberhardt approaches Biased with brain science and story, a delightful learning combination. “Implicit bias is not a new way of calling someone a racist. You don’t have to be a racist at all to be influenced by it. Implicit bias is a distorting lens that’s a product of both the architecture of our brain and the disparities of our society.” She also brings in the relationship between mindset and bias, another reason to understand your mindset, and influence fixed mindsets whenever possible. I highly recommend this for any leader on their continued journey of self-awareness, especially as interest grows in understanding your bias
