"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. They explore simple steps to overcoming bias
tailored to individuals and small groups. 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. Overcoming Bias gives me hope that the biases that separate people can be changed if we're willing to put in the work. With all the discord in the world today, this is the right message at the right time."
