Each month, we will handpick a new book to read together, relating to one of our core issues. Make sure to get the book to read along!
Join Global Citizens around the world for weekly discussions about the book, and how it relates to ending extreme poverty. We’ll chat in our “Global Citizen All-Access” Facebook Group.
After reading together, we will host a discussion with the author, where you will get the chance to hear about their inspiration and ask questions! Use your points to instantly claim your seat!

With nuance, compassion, and ten years' immersion in the topic, Jessica Nordell weaves gripping stories with scientific research to reveal how minds, hearts, and behaviors change. She scrutinizes diversity training, deployed across the land as a corrective but with inconsistent results. She explores what works and why: the diagnostic checklist used by doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital that eliminated disparate treatment of men and women; the preschool in Sweden where teachers found ingenious ways to uproot gender stereotyping; the police unit in Oregon where the practice of mindfulness and specialized training has coincided with a startling drop in the use of force.
