Join us for a book launch event with Tiffany Jana and Matthew Freeman in celebration of their recent release, Overcoming Bias: Building Authentic Relationships Across Differences. Free & open to the public.

About the authors: Tiffany Jana and Matthew Freeman are the cofounders of TMI Consulting; Jana is CEO and Freeman is senior executive consultant. TMI's clients include the German Marshall Fund of the United States, the YMCA, the US Congress, the National Institutes of Health, and Virginia Commonwealth University.

TMI Consulting is a 2016 Best for the World honoree, in recognition of its having scored in the top 10 percent of all Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment, a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of a company's impact on its workers, the community, and the environment.

About the book: Control, Conquer, and Prevail! Everybody's biased. The truth is, we all harbor unconscious assumptions that can get in the way of our good intentions and keep us from building authentic relationships with people different from ourselves. Tiffany Jana and Matthew Freeman use vivid stories and fun (yes, fun!) exercises and activities to help us reflect on our personal experiences and uncover how our hidden biases are formed. By becoming more self-aware, we can control knee-jerk reactions, conquer fears of the unknown, and prevail over closed-mindedness. In the end, Jana and Freeman's central message is that you are not the problem—but you can be the solution.:
