Rebuilding a more equitable Minnesota
Workplace bias takes many forms, but the result is always the same—exclusion of members of the workforce from experiences and opportunities for which they are qualified. Biases prevent businesses from leveraging the talents and perspectives of all members of their workforce.
We all have hidden biases. But we can work to identify and address the ones that are harmful—to others and ourselves.
Regional Workforce Strategy Consultants are working with employers throughout Minnesota on identifying and addressing hidden biases. They've developed a series of articles to help employers take these important steps. You can see an overview of the series here.
Articles in this series:
- Recognizing hidden biases in recruiting and hiring
- Addressing hidden bias in retention strategies
- Sustaining an inclusive workplace
The more awareness and consciousness we can bring to hidden bias, the more likely we will be able to make decisions in a way that is not only fair, but based in better talent management for your company.
