About OpenMind: “In recent years, our society has become increasingly divided. Rather than appreciating our differences, all too often, people view the world through an “us versus them” lens. OpenMind is a non-profit organization that works to address these issues by translating the latest behavioral science research into educational tools that are practical, scalable, and evidence-based in order to equip people with the mindset and skillset to bridge divides. Our educational tools are built primarily for use in higher education and high schools, but they are also used in workplaces and community organizations.”
