What is it about?
Although abundant evidence indicates that bias and diversity trainings do not work, there is considerable hope that we can develop effective trainings if we draw on the science of cognitive-behavioral change and empower people as autonomous agents of change. One such approach, the bias habit-breaking training, has been highly effective, with over 15 years of randomized-controlled experiments showing that it produces long-term changes, empowering people as agents of change who reduce bias, create inclusion, and promote equity, both within themselves and the social contexts they inhabit. By harnessing the science of cognitive-behavioral change, we can create meaningful, long-lasting social change in the realm of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
