Bias might be built in to how our brains work, but that doesn't make it acceptable. Recent advances in psychology and neuroscience have given us unprecedented insight into how biases interfere with good decision-making. When it comes to leadership, biases create a 'sticky floor', making it hard for women to rise to the top. The good news is that the change to gender balance can be accelerated if you know more about how bias works.
In this book, Dr Karen Morley explains how biases, particularly the insidious unconscious ones, trip us up. She outlines an approach for minimising their impact in organisations, with Bias Busters - specific actions you can take with the goal of making it easier to notice, talk about and overcome bias.
BEAT GENDER BIAS is for leaders and all men and women who want a better working world. By creating an inclusive culture, organisations create personal, social and economic value that will sustain future success.
This book makes it clear how you can make a difference and play a bigger, more satisfying part in creating a more inclusive world.
