AT Kearney - How to identify unconscious bias at the workplace and find what you can do about it

Working in a diverse team can have a positive impact on results and encourage innovation. However, mixed teams also face challenges because of hidden biases. They impact team work and business decisions, whether they are linked to gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical attributes, etc. Even personal names can unconsciously impact decision-making – you might have heard of studies showing that shorter names lead to higher salaries. As part of Career Connect's Job Ready series, we will have Dr Laura Wendt from A.T. Kearney, present the topic "How to identify unconscious bias at the workplace, and find how what you can do about it".
