14. How to identify and mitigate unconscious bias in the workplace
From Nov. 12:
Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist Erik Kandel once estimated that 80% to 90% of the mind works unconsciously, meaning that the brains of even the most unbiased people still exhibit this primal tendency. The effects of this unconscious bias are perhaps most felt in the workplace, where, despite organizations increasingly advocating for greater equality and respect for all employees, social categorizations such as age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status and physical disability continue to impact hiring and employee promotions.
