About I Don’t Understand
I Don’t Understand is a first-of-its-kind practical guide to navigating career-stifling, profit-draining unconscious bias in the workplace. Think of it as your GPS system for zeroing in on the core problems that must be solved to put unconscious bias in your rear-view mirror. The book presents a refreshing new approach that will help your organization avoid detours that lead to frustration, loss of morale, and significant tolls on your organization’s bottom line. I Don’t Understand? reveals a new paradigm for dealing with bias-related issues, as well as proven, practical tools.
A New Approach
Buki’s “I Don’t Understand (IDU)” Methodology is a ground-breaking “triple win” approach: a win for an organization’s people, its management, and its stakeholders. IDU reframes the traditional concepts of victims and perpetrators and is applicable to everyone—not just the traditional targets of workplace bias, but also those, including leaders, who feel their own actions and responses can be misinterpreted as biased. It empowers the "victim," whoever they may be, to gain the skills and confidence to respond quickly and effectively.

This is great! The guilty perpetrator versus hapless victim is an appropriate approach to an age-old issue that continues to inhibit performances at various strata of society. You have painstakingly shifted focus from the perpetrator or victims...guiding them to turn otherwise destructive situations by responding with openness, without being judgmental or emotional.
—Funmi Alakija, PhD
