Overview:

Have you ever heard yourself say?

  • I like them - they are like me
  • I won't ask them to help - it's not their kind of thing
  • I will ask them to do this – they always do a good job
  • They don't work that day so they won't be interested
  • We need a man to help with this

These are everyday examples of unconscious bias. Whether recruiting in our image or making judgements based on our perceptions or previous experience, we are withholding opportunities for all by letting our biases make our decisions for us.

Unconscious bias is increasingly being brought into discussions around equality and inclusion in the workplace. It can impact everything from recruitment and attraction to opportunity, promotion and retention and can have a detrimental effect on diversity within an organizations.
