While it is easy to identify intentionally built systems of oppression like Jim Crow or the glass ceiling for women in the workplace, confronting systems that perpetuate subtle, unconscious bias is much harder. This title will help people tackle structural bias regardless of their positional power. Eliminating systemic bias can seem an insurmountable task from the vantage point of an ordinary individual, yet the authors empower readers to recognize that each of us has the ability to affect systemic bias through a deliberate, coordinated effort. Institutional bias afflicts all industries — including business, education, health care, government, tech, the arts, nonprofits, and finance and banking. Among the types of institutional bias addressed are hiring bias, gender bias, racial bias, occupational bias, and customer bias. This book focuses on bias in the workplace and gives readers practices and activities to create organizational trust to challenge these implicit biases.
