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.
