How Racial Bias Works – And How to Disrupt It
In Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do, SPARQ Co-Director Jennifer Eberhardt reflects on what it will take to truly confront racial bias and combat disparities across society. Science shows that racial bias is both deeply ingrained in our minds and woven intricately throughout society. While recognizing the power of bias is necessary to confront it, its effects need not be inevitable. Social science can help provide critical insights, tools, and strategies to disrupt and even eliminate racial bias. Watch her TED talk to learn more about how racial bias operates at all levels of society — from schools and social media to policing and criminal justice — and how to disrupt it.
