In recent years, our society has become increasingly divided. Rather than appreciating our differences, all too often, people are viewing the world through an "us versus them" lens. OpenMind works to address these issues by translating the best behavioral science research into practicable, scalable, and evidence-based tools that equip people with the mindset and skill set to communicate and collaborate across differences. By conducting original research, developing tools and resources for individuals and institutions, and rigorously evaluating the effectiveness of our interventions, we aim to promote inclusive cultures that support open and constructive dialogue. Our tools are built for use in many contexts, including schools and universities, workplaces, and communities.
OpenMind is a non-partisan, non-profit organization that was co-founded by the social psychologist Jonathan Haidt, the author of the bestselling books The Righteous Mind and The Coddling of the American Mind. Since launching in 2017, our online program has reached more than 45,000 learners in more than 900 classrooms, as well as 100+ organizations and companies, across more than 15 countries.
