Amazing quote - "Most concerningly, a study from Yale researchers shows that perceiving yourself as objective is actually correlated with showing even more bias."

 

A very smart piece. I think the only thing I faintly disagree with is saying that you have to “..leaders have to get rid of employees who engage in sexist or racist behavior” - I think that’s too late. It will be perceived as unfair and harsh, with bounceback attitudes that actually strengthen biases (“women are too touchy - and now Joe lost his job”).
