How We #BreakTheBias


We know that conversations about unconscious bias – whether related to issues of self-confidence or algorithms propagating the biases of their programmers in hiring technologies – can be uncomfortable. That’s why we are challenging ourselves to start normalising those conversations, because only once business leaders and managers are informed about the way unconscious bias pervades into hiring processes and the workplace can they put in effective processes to systematically break the bias. Only once a workplace culture is created that enables women to feel supported and safe to discuss how they feel affected by gender bias can everyone truly feel empowered to perform to their full potential.


We want to start an overdue conversation and we look forward to raising awareness of the unconscious bias brought towards hiring women in technology and the challenges it poses, influencing employers, educating managers, and making a small contribution to creating a healthier, and more inclusive, workplace for everyone.
