Just Read: Moral Self-Licensing Part 2 - Challenge to Eliminating Bias in Health Care

It gets better.

This is a 2015 update from Author Daniel Effron at London Business School (@lbs) – and yet another reminder that the business profession has done as much if not more work in the area of behavioral health as the medical profession.

Continuing from the previous post on this topic (Just Read: Moral Self-Licensing – a continual challenge to eliminating bias in health care), this update adds more information about human motivation.

I’m framing this post through the perspective of bias, but the principles apply to health behavior, consumer behavior, etc….

Photos Friday: Thanks for Publishing My Photos in: Logan Circle, A Tale of Two Eras, Washington, DC USA

This week’s photograph is from a collection that’s published in this post on Washington, DC’s Urban Turf (@UrbanTurf_DC) blog: Logan Circle: A Tale of Two Eras.

It’s a great story about the renaissance of a part of our nation’s capital that was destroyed multiple times, neglected, and now experiencing a renaissance. It’s the neighborhood I am a part of and is integrated with dozens of artifacts of the work of great people who led in a world that didn’t them to (actually, the world didn’t want them to exist, much less lead).

Photo Friday: The Best-Designed All Gender Restroom I Have Been In

I am sure that most people who visit the beautiful Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco building spend time taking photos of the exterior and interior architecture. I spent time taking photos of the bathroom, which was the most unexpected surprise of the building’s experience – a clearly and deliberately designed all gender restroom.

What’s great about it?
