While many of us would like to believe we live in a “post-prejudicial” society, we’re simply not there. Tribalism is on the rise and our traditional power structures reenforce inequality. Through our exposure to this system, we internalize implicit biases that influence our choices and actions. This process is so insidious, we may not even know we’re prejudiced.
If we aspire to be a “shining city on the hill,” then it is our responsibility to have an earnest dialogue about subconscious stereotypes and institutional power dynamics. Until we understand how our own biases shape this landscape — and take responsibility for changing them — we’ll reinforce a cycle that has its genesis in the darkest parts of human history.

Evelyn Carter is a social psychologist who is passionate about changing how we talk about race. She studies how people detect, discuss, and confront racial bias, striving to bridge the gap between academia and those who want to use data to guide their work.
Evelyn has worked as the Director of Translational Research & Anti-Bias Training at UCLA and now helps organizations apply research-based insights as a Senior Consultant for Paradigm Strategy Inc.
Talking about race can be hard, scary, and awkward—but it doesn’t have to be. Join Evelyn as she shares her academic insights on how to uproot implicit assumptions and institutional oppression, and lay the groundwork for a more equitable society.
"My hope is that you will find at least one – but hopefully more – nuggets of information that can help you become more aware of the biases you have, encourage you to take action to change those biases, and give you the spark to share these insights with those around you.”
