Stereotypes

Stereotypes are helping us to make sense of the world around us – and we all use them. But of course, these stereotypes can be very harmful to others. Interesting article about stereotypes against Asian women; they are often seen as docile and subservient, which can directly impact their career progression.

Bias

Companies are currently investing a lot of effort to fight racial inequalities in the workplace. One of the huge challenges is unconscious bias impacting decision making – this article looks at three common biases and how we can overcome them.

Neurodiversity

We have all heard of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) – but there are a lot of misunderstandings about this condition. Very insightful article, worth reading!

Gender Equality

100 years ago, the 19th amendment was passed in the US congress, allowing women to vote. In other countries (including Canada and Switzerland) women got the right to vote much later. An interesting overview of the history of women’s suffrage across the world.
