Dolly Chugh

Brett Toppel

Many of us believe in equality, diversity and inclusion. But, at times, it can be challenging to stand up for those values. Bias often gets in the way, whether its our own or the bias of others.

But social scientist Dolly Chugh, who teaches at the Stern School of Business at New York University, says each of us could be doing more to confront our prejudice. In her new book "The Person You Mean To Be: How Good People Fight Bias," Chugh explains ways to spot your intolerance and provides examples about becoming a better ally. 

She spoke with KNKX Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick.
