Virtual Event: Bias Interrupted
Creating Inclusion for Real and for Good
Many companies are sincerely interested in making progress on diversity, equity, and inclusion but have no clue how to do so.
American companies spend close to $8 billion annually on diversity efforts, with remarkably few results.Too often, diversity efforts rest on the assumption that all that’s needed is an earnest conversation about “privilege.”
Addressing systemic bias and prejudice requires changing systems. Bias Interrupted has a reassuring message that leaders just need to use standard business tools data and metrics—to interrupt the bias that is constantly transmitted through forma l sys tems like performance appraisals and the informal systems that control access to opportunities.
The book presents new evidence based on Williams’s research and work with companies, including evidence that interrupting bias helps every group—including white men. Compact and straightforward, Bias Interrupted delivers real practical value to anyone who wants to see change happen.
