Diversity

Google released its latest Diversity Report this week, and similar to the past years, there is very little progress for women and people of colour. Although companies in the tech industry are putting extra effort into changing the numbers, we see almost no improvements across the globe.

Bias

Unconscious biases are everywhere, including in the workplace. With our new ways of working remotely, there are new challenges though - and with them, we see other biases that might impact how we work with our teams. Interesting article with a few tips for leaders on how they can prevent those biases.

Gender Equality

An interesting survey, looking at the split of domestic work during the global pandemic. While both men and women are currently spending more time on housework and child care, the split has not changed and women continue to do more.

Inclusion

A feel-good story from South Africa. 59-year-old Llewellyn Barnes was living on the streets just a few months ago, but thanks to being given a chance, he has now qualified as a professional golfer.
