Jennifer L. Eberhardt - Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Eberhardt, a professor of psychology at Stanford, is one of the foremost experts on unconscious racial bias. Her important new book draws on research—both in the lab and in real-world contexts such as courtrooms, prisons, boardrooms, and on the street—and her own experience to show that you don’t have to be racist to be biased. Nearly all of us are biased, she argues, however much we believe in equality. Tracing bias through all level of society, Eberhardt illustrates how it affects representations and interactions in the media, education, and business. But because these inherent prejudices are in some sense a basic part of human nature, Eberhardt, named one of Foreign Policy’s 100 Leading Global Thinkers, believes that we can work together to eradicate them.
