Event Description:

Join the Women of UDI for tasty drinks, yummy snacks and a spirited discussion about Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People
 

 

Our 2018 Celebrating Women panelist, Evi Mustel (President, Mustel Group), will join us as our guest moderator.



Featured Book: Blindspot 

We are once again delighted to be hosted by Clark Wilson in their cozy lounge space, perfect for a riveting group discussion.


Blindspot authors Mahzarin Banaji and Anthony Greenwald explore hidden biases that we all carry around age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, social class, sexuality, disability status, or nationality. Blindspot is a metaphor to capture that portion of the mind that houses hidden biases. The authors use it to ask about the extent to which social groups – without our awareness or conscious control – shape our likes and dislikes, our judgments about people’s character, abilities, and potential.

The title’s “good people” are the many people – the authors included – who strive to align their behavior with their good intentions. The aim of Blindspot is to explain the science in plain enough language to allow well-intentioned people to better achieve that alignment. Venturing into this book is an invitation to understand our own minds.
 
We would love for you to join us and share your thoughts about this book, and how it applies to our work in the development industry.
 
We hope you enjoy this read, and bring your ideas to our October 30th Book Club!
 
We look forward to seeing you there.
