Lead by example

  • Discuss your own biases before reviewing or interviewing candidates applying for roles and opportunities.
  • Make a conscious effort to look beyond common stereotypes and seek to challenge default assumptions.
  • Acknowledge any assumptions you may have, including unconscious biases in your language, and encourage others to do the same.
  • Keep a checklist of how you mitigate your own biases. Fostering a fair and transparent process by calling out incidents of bias is something each of us can do.
