THE BIG BUSINESS OF UNCONSCIOUS BIAS
Companies want to avoid racism, sexism and misgendering. Consultants are standing by.
NYT article: “Institutions and businesses are trying to correct power imbalances, which means a growing need for experts who can help address and define issues like unconscious bias.”
The article talks about the old sensitivity training and quotes Ms. Bowser, of TMI Consulting Inc.,“It focuses on the negative: what not to do or say. But one-off training doesn’t shift culture in the direction we want to see it go: building empathy.” Inclusion is an ongoing process. Pay equity, language, marketing and hiring practices are all now subject to scrutiny.
We here at SunShower agree. That’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to producing a range of videos, elearning courses and workshops that are designed to focus attention on inclusiveness as a leadership skill.
