I do various forms of consulting, but the standard engagement is “the TALK.” I’ve given many talks on implicit bias and stereotype threat to audiences outside of the academy, ranging from corporate executives to federal judges to hospitals to universities. I take on projects case-by-case.
In choosing my projects, I take into account travel convenience, audience, and the amount of time available for serious intellectual engagement. (If you don’t have at least an hour to learn about the subject, it probably isn’t worth my time or yours.) My goal is to have an impact.
Due to limited time, I charge non-trivial speaking fees. I also provide many pro bono or reduced fee talks, especially to government institutions.
“Your talk . . . was inspirational, transfixing and completely effective. You reached the persuadable middle, in a way they won’t forget. I received so many compliments, by those frequently educated in implicit bias or novices to the concept, that this was the best talk on the subject they had ever seen. You read the group perfectly.”
