Creating diversity in the workplace should be an essential goal for all organizations. and groups. However, decades of research show that people instinctively classify others by race and gender, and respond to one another based on stereotypes and social norms. Implicit biases often lead to inequalities in promotion and pay, and creates an environment of "not belonging", especially for women and underrepresented groups.
