We are living in extraordinary times. As our nation faces a reckoning with systemic racism, the coronavirus pandemic is disproportionately impacting women and exacerbating gender inequalities. Organizations have been forced to change, adapt, and reevaluate their ways of doing things. Even as vaccines become more widely available, we cannot return to normal. Normal is not sustainable. Normal upholds gender and racial inequality. The future of work is here now—it is time to reimagine the workplace.
Disparity in the workplace is largely an outcome of systemic inequality, not simply personal bias or discriminatory behaviors. This interactive session will explore the ways in which bias is often unintentionally built into our operational systems, including our hiring practices, employee benefits, performance evaluations, compensation, and more. With examples of emerging research-based best practices, HR changemakers will be provided with simple strategies to disrupt bias and promote a culture of inclusion and belonging.
