Journalist Jessica Nordell narrates this absorbing collection of anecdotes and social science research in a tone that is assertive and inviting. Persuasive writing and the equanimity in Nordell's voice make the case that unconscious bias and discrimination are human tendencies that deserve closer examination and greater effort to remedy. The author shows how hospitals, schools, and other institutions enable discrimination by unintentionally enabling stereotyping, especially of men and women, racial groups, ethnic groups, and disabled people. The research she cites shows how our culture uses these groupings to maintain castes and hierarchies. This is an important and enlightening audiobook for institutional leaders and anyone who wants to play a part in lessening the damage caused by these unexamined injustices.
