Bias has been a concern for hiring professionals for decades, and new initiatives to improve diversity and inclusion in the workplace make figuring out what to do about it more urgent than ever.
Humans are biased. Research shows that no matter the pains we take to be fair, objective, and rational, biased thinking is just part of our basic, sometimes faulty, human wiring. We instinctively align ourselves with people and ideas that are similar to ourselves, that feel familiar, that reflect who we are and what we value.
“Diversity and inclusion are not just buzzwords or empty metrics—they’re the foundation for a forward-thinking, revenue-generating business.”
— Kay Fabella, D&I consultant
