Increasingly, organizations have become concerned with identifying strategies to reduce rates of bias incidents and to promote equality. Abundant evidence indicates that, however well-intentioned, diversity and bias intervention efforts that are not based on scientific evidence at best do not work and very often make bias problems worse (e.g., Apfelbaum et al., 2012; Dobbin & Kalev, 2013; Legault et al., 2011; Paluck & Green, 2009).
The bias habit breaking training was the first intervention that has been shown experimentally to produce long-term changes in bias (Cox & Devine, 2019; Devine, Forscher, Austin, & Cox, 2012). This training was built on more than 30 years of research on the prejudice habit model (Devine, 1989), which approaches bias as a type of mental habit.
