It Starts with Words: Unconscious Bias in Gender, Race, and Class in Tech Terminology

If There’s Only One Woman in Your Candidate Pool, There’s Statistically No Chance She’ll Be Hired

Despite the ever-growing business case for diversity, roughly 85% of board members and executives are white men. This doesn’t mean that companies haven’t tried to change. Many have started investing hundreds of millions of dollars on diversity initiatives each year. But the biggest challenge seems to be figuring out how to overcome unconscious biases that get in the way of these well-intentioned programs.

This misguided hiring strategy can also contribute to a company’s lack of diversity, since very often the people we enjoy hanging out with have backgrounds much like our own.

These issues are so hard to tackle and Intersections nails it.

- Katie

I find it hard to speak up during these discussions because I'm overly worried that with my fairly limited cultural background, I'm going to say something that would be interpreted the wrong way.
