Journalists go out of their way to avoid purposeful bias in the news. But there is a more pervasive set of internal biases and flaws in thinking that can lead to unintentional inaccuracies and distortions in news coverage. This engaging book offers a fresh take on reporting without bias, targeting the way that we categorize people, filter information and default to rehearsed ways of thinking. Included throughout are stories and on-target advice from reporters and editors, providing real-world voices and experiences. This advice and guidance is coupled with practical exercises that give readers the chance to apply what they learn. Overcoming Bias will teach readers to edit their thinking for habitual errors, making them more perceptive journalists. It provides a career-long foundation for challenging bias. This is an ideal text for a course on multi-cultural reporting or journalism ethics; it may also be used as a supplement in any course on reporting and writing, as each chapter deals with potential biases that emerge at each stage of the story process, from story ideas to editing.

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.

"Updated with two new chapters for this paperback edition, this book argues that the development process is marked by male bias - ill-founded and unjustified asymmetries that operate in favour of men and against women." "The contributors include some of the leading writers in the gender and development field. Together they analyse the variety of forms taken by male bias, its foundations and the way it changes over time, and the possibilities for overcoming it. The cases considered cover both urban and rural settings: agriculture, industry and services; self-employment and wage-employment in Africa, Asia and Latin America."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This volume considers the impact of information technology on women's employment and education by examining two main themes: the effect of women's perspectives on systems analysis and design; and the factors which lead to the under-representation of women in the computer profession, and in particular, to the low numbers of female students of computer science and informatics. Statistics on participation of women in the computer industry are included, along with theories and empirical findings on participatory design of office systems and case studies on the impact of information technology on gendered division of labour. Papers suggesting ways of overcoming the problems faced both by women users of computer systems and by women entering the computing profession complete the volume.
