#288 Dr Pragya Agarwal: How Do You Judge Other People?

Today's guest is Dr Pragya Agarwal, a behavioural and data scientist, and the bestselling author of SWAY: Unravelling Unconscious Bias which came out this year. Her writing on bias and prejudice, motherhood, gender and racial inequality and mental health has appeared in The Guardian, Independent, Huffington Post,, Forbes, and many more.


Her next book ‘Wish we knew what to say: Talking with children about race’ is a manual for parents, carers and educators of all backgrounds and ethnicities to talk to children about race and racism - out with Dialogue Publishers (Hatchette) this month!


Pragya also has a mini podcast series ‘Outside the boxes’ which I recommend checking out which examines how the labels and stereotypes affect us as a society, the science behind it, and what we can do about it.


This episode is all about discovering our conscious and conscious bias, how we can notice them and what we can do to make the world a bit better.
