It is human nature to keep things the same… how many people walk into their favorite restaurant and order the same thing every time?
It also applies to recruitment and people management.
Some barriers to diversity, equity and inclusion will be presented, such as Networking/ Access, “Mini me” syndrome, Prototype and Stereotype, micro-advantages and micro-disadvantages.
Conscious bias is blatant discrimination. Unconscious bias is more of “fast thinking”. Here are the most common ones: conformity, beauty, affinity, halo/horn, contrast, recency, intuition.
How to minimize biases: it’s all starts with self-awareness. And then we can use tools such as: set specific criteria, structure interviews, take copious notes, use of Artificial Intelligence and increase accountability.
3 Learning Objectives:
– Get understanding about most common biases and barriers to diversity, equity and inclusion
– Be aware of your own biases when recruiting and managing people
– How to identify biases and how to avoid them
Are you Biased? I am Biased. Biases in Recruitment and in People Management.
