Diversity Beans are special jelly beans created to teach about implicit bias, prejudice, and stereotypes. Because flavors may not match colors, Diversity Beans force people to experience bias and question their judgments.
For people who care about building inclusive workplaces, classrooms, and communities, Diversity Beans are a great tool to add to your toolbox.
