About Perception:

Perception Institute is a consortium of researchers, advocates, and strategists who translate cutting edge mind science research on race, gender, ethnic, and other identities into solutions that reduce bias and discrimination, and promote belonging.

Perception's core services include needs assessments related to workplace equity, workshops on mind science content, synthesis of mind science research, and other client-facing support to promote belonging in workplaces and drive equity in outcomes.
