About the

Bias Interrupters Working Group

Formed in 2015, the Bias Interrupters Working Group is an interdisciplinary group of high-profile researchers working with six prominent companies to pilot Bias Interrupters and find out what works. Experimental teams work with corporate members to implement Bias Interrupters into basic business systems and measure results.

This Working Group has:

  • Implemented seven Bias Interrupter experiments in prominent companies
  • Developed a Bias Climate Survey to help companies pinpoint what they need to work on.

Working Group Participants

Five distinct groups make up the Working Group:

  • Behavioral economists
  • Experimental social psychologists who study workplace gender and racial bias
  • Organizational change scholars
  • An editor of Harvard Business Review
  • Select Corporate Members (invitation only)
