Joan Williams, professor and the founding director of the Center for WorkLife
Law at the University of California’s Hastings College of the Law, says that
it's extremely difficult for organizations to rid their workforces of the
unconscious biases that can prevent women and minorities from advancing. But
it's not so hard for individual managers to interrupt bias within their own
teams. She offers specific suggestions for how bosses can shift their approach
in four areas: hiring, meetings, assignments, and reviews/promotions. Leaders
who employ these practices, she argues, are able to embrace and reap the
advantages of diversity, even in the absence of larger organizational
directives. Williams is the author of the HBR article "How the Best Bosses
Interrupt Bias on Their Teams." Read more
