In November 2014, the Perception Institute released The Science of Equality, Volume 1: Addressing Implicit Bias, Racial Anxiety, and Stereotype Threat in Education and Health Care. The landmark report synthesizes hundreds of studies, providing a comprehensive picture of the role of implicit bias in discrimination.
The Kirwan Institute has released a new State of the Science: Implicit Bias Review every year for the past two years. The original 2013 report applies the implications of implicit bias to education, health and criminal justice. The 2014 report builds on this by delving into employment and housing.
