Building a diverse and inclusive workplace is critical if you want to foster innovation in your organization. One way to advocate for diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) is to acknowledge unconscious bias, according to Marisol Hughes, EVP & general counsel for WilsonHCG.

"Just because it’s there, doesn’t mean we have to accept it, however," she added. "It’s a continual effort to engage and educate employees about unconscious bias. This includes building awareness training recruitment team members around its inevitable presence. You may never eliminate bias completely, but you can foster openness in addressing it and put in place real action plans when it comes up in the workplace.”
