Let the CEO of Rework Work help you understand diversity, equity, and inclusion concepts to actively remove bias from the workplace

Dismantling unhealthy workplaces involves much more than talking about it, and more than charts, graphs, and statistics―it requires action. Although it’s increasingly common for businesses of all shapes and sizes to appreciate the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, many are often unaware of bias in the cultures they’ve created. Others might know there’s a problem, but don’t know how to properly address it.

UNBIAS: Addressing Unconscious Bias At Work helps you understand concepts of workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion, shows you how to identify bias, and provides you with the tools for actively removing barriers and ensuring equity throughout your organization. Written by Stacey Gordon―CEO of Rework Work, a company on a mission to reduce bias in global talent acquisition and management―this real-world handbook offers step-by-step guidance on creating workplace cultures where employees feel they belong.
