Dolly Chugh is an award-winning professor at the New York University Stern School of Business. She studies implicit bias and unintentional unethical behavior (“bounded ethicality”). Her goal is to engage business students in important societal issues and to equip them to do the same with others. Dolly’s research integrates the theories and methods of social psychology, behavioral economics, judgment and decision making, sociology, and education.
Dolly Chugh’s book “The Person You Mean to Be: How Good People Fight Bias” is an inspiring guide on how to confront difficult issues including sexism, racism, inequality, and injustice so that you can make the world (and yourself) better. It is the smart, “semi-bold” person’s guide to fighting for what you believe in.
• She argues that the only way to be on the right side of history is to be a good-ish rather than a good person.
• She helps you find the part of your everyday identity you take for granted.
• She introduces the psychological reasons that make it hard for us to see the bias in and around us.
• She guides you on how, when, and whom, to engage (and not engage) in your workplaces, homes, and communities.
