“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.”
—Helayne Spivak, Director, Virginia Commonwealth University Brandcenter
