Q1. I have seen gender roles related bias especially when men not recognised as caregivers by society may not be provided adequate paternal leave, face external pressure against, or feel hesitant about, taking childcare leave. #STinsights @CIOStraightTalk— Ruchi Dass (@drruchibhatt) March 24, 2022
It’s important to spot the biases and take action to build a more diverse and inclusive workplace!
Q1. Unconscious bias occurs without us being aware of it, hence, acknowledgment is the first step. It is critical to address all bias.

Q3 It is vital to address and acknowledge biases to set the foundation for an inclusive workplace. One must take a closer look at how decisions are made & transformed at workplace. All functional processes where decisions are made are prone to bias and need attention. #STinsights https://t.co/1j1Hc9lkSs— Chandini Kamal (@ChandiniKamal) March 24, 2022

Leaders have to set an example to show that they try to minimizing unconscious bias. Otherwise, processes are not understood properly by the middle management layer who see it as a checklist rather than an ongoing journey. #STInsights #Tweetchat cc @CIOStraightTalk https://t.co/ozShXxLj1o— Jennifer Stirrup - Next Up: #IntelInfluencer (@jenstirrup) March 24, 2022
