Our Methodology

Gaining international recognition for our breakthrough work in Unconscious Bias, Cook Ross is a full service organizational development firm. Our end-to-end solutions draw on a key element of our Unconscious Bias work — developing an increased awareness of the hidden factors driving human behavior in people and organizations. We directly apply cutting edge research from the fields of social cognition theory, social psychology, behavioral economics, and visual cognition to practical business and community environments around the world.
