About unconscious bias

73% of women experience bias at work – yet less than a third of employees are able to recognise bias when they see it.

Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it harder for women to get hired and promoted and negatively impacts their day-to-day work experiences.

This makes it difficult for companies to level the playing field. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough.
