Now, as lockdown restrictions slowly and unevenly begin to lift, employers are starting to think about how to bring employees back into the office. The return to normal is likely to be a long path with plenty of ups and downs. To makes things as easy as possible, company leaders should take the time now to carefully craft their

Proportional Prejudice: How Diversifying Your Applicant Pool Can Lead to a Less Diverse Workforce

We know certain types of jobs tend to be held by more men than women, or vice versa. Programming jobs, for instance, are notoriously male-dominated, while positions in human resources are often populated by women. The managers we speak with and consult for are often aware of this imbalance and want to remedy it. One common fix we hear is to recruit candidates more broadly. In other words, encourage more members of the underrepresented gender to apply to particular jobs. We ...

Hiring for Fit With Data, Not Your Gut

It is common to say, "Trust your gut!" when it comes to hiring. A hiring manager's intuition can often be a make-or-break factor in determining a candidate's fit. However, gut instinct isn't always reliable, and it's rarely supported by data. Instead of relying on such a flawed measure, hiring teams need to screen for candidate fit in a way that can be analyzed and compared, a way that minimizes bias as much as possible. One way to do this is to ...

5 Ways Women Can Support Each Other at Work

Article by Katherine Fusco We've all heard the narrative, the one about the senior woman who doesn't support women below her. (We hear quite a bit less about the battles that senior woman fought and the toll they have taken.) We know, too, about the mansplainers, the low-key harassers, and the underminers young women face at work. Some women might object to the premise of this article. They might say they identify as individuals or that their employers don't ...

Expanding Your Anti-Racist Managerial Toolkit: How 'Human Check-Ins' Can Build a Better Workplace

I have started every meeting I have facilitated for my direct staff the same way for the past seven years: with a human check-in. A human check-in gives each attendee an opportunity to share something that is on their mind. In increments of just about a minute each, team members have celebrated a new car purchase or wedding anniversaries; recounted illnesses of pets and family members; and shared new hobbies, upcoming vacation plans, and the elation of new grandchildren. They have ...
