Perception Institute inspires people to live their values.

Our brains like to be right, our hearts strive to be good. The very experience of identity difference, however, can send these basic human impulses into a state of agitation. Unless disrupted, stereotypes embedded in our brains can turn into implicit bias and lead to discrimination over time. And racial anxiety — the concern that we might confirm our own biases or experience bias from someone else — makes racial navigation even more challenging.
