This summer, the Office of Diversity & Inclusion recommends that Pace faculty, staff and parents read The Person You Mean To Be: How Good People Fight Bias by Dolly Chugh. Chugh, an award-winning social psychologist at the New York University Stern School of Business, reveals the surprising causes of inequality, grounded in the “psychology of good people.”
Using her research findings in unconscious bias as well as work across psychology, sociology, economics, political science and other disciplines, Chugh offers practical tools to respectfully and effectively talk politics with family, to be a better colleague to people who don’t look like you and to avoid being a well-intentioned barrier to equality. “Being the person we mean to be starts with a look at ourselves,” she writes.
Stayed tuned for information regarding a parent conversation in the fall around this book.
