Bias

According to Deloitte’s "2019 State of Inclusion Survey", the majority of the respondents feel that their employers foster inclusive workplaces. Bias remains an issue though, with over 60% commenting that they have experienced bias (age, gender and race) in the past 12 months.

Diversity

Facebook just shared their latest diversity report – and not much has changed. Like most tech companies, they are struggling to bring in more women and ethnic minorities. Facebook has now committed to double the number of women globally and Black and Hispanic employees in the US in the next five years. Read more here.

Diversity

Do diversity trainings actually change attitudes and behaviour? Researchers from Wharton worked together with a large global organization and published their very interesting findings in HBR this week.

Women’s Empowerment

Nike’s brand strategy is working! The advertNever stop winning” was released after the US women’s soccer team won the World Cup – worth watching!
