VIDEO: The Impact of Implicit Bias in Hiring
The Ohio State University Offices of Academic Affairs and Human Resources created the following 5-minute video to help their faculty understand how implicit bias unconsciously impacts decision-making in hiring and career advancement.
Specifically, they highlight how unconscious bias will prevent them from accomplishing their stated goal of faculty diversity unless they face it head-on. They discuss several categories of bias: gender, race, sexual orientation, and parental status.
What did you learn from the video? Do you think some of the same biases could be impacting hiring and career advancement decisions where you work? What did the video suggest to help overcome our biases in this area?
