Understanding and working toward eliminating bias is an admirable goal for anyone, but especially for leaders. Leaders make decisions that change lives.

The quickly escalating globalization and diversification of the workforce, coupled with the increased social demand for justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion has made understanding bias critical for anyone with leadership aspirations or responsibilities.

Happily, there are things that leaders can do to not only increase their awareness of bias in their lives, but break the habit of unchecked bias. This book will help you understand what bias is, how you can recognize it, and what you can do about it through using the SCRIPt toolkit.
