Unconscious Bias

This magazine-format publication consists primarily of a paper describing the nature and prevalence of unconscious bias, companies' "organisational unconscious", and methods of dealing with bias in the workplace.

It presents steps to identify biases, and provides 10 strategies to combat them effectively. Side-bars provide case studies of two companies which have implemented measures to counteract biases, as well as a spotlight article on how micro-affirmations can be used to build cohesion in organisations and a discussion of the Level Playing Field Institute's Corporate Leavers Survey, which examined employee's reasons for leaving their work roles and which identified "perceived unfairness" as a major contributor to their decision to leave.
