Key takeaways

Unconscious bias in hiring will eventually build a workforce that lacks diverse perspectives.

People don't know they have unconscious biases - hence the name. Admitting it is the first step to tackling it.

Creating checks and balances within the hiring process will help to mitigate the manifestation and impacts of unconscious bias.
