    Two Steps Behind Before Beginning the Race: Bias in the Workplace

    12 PM EDT

    This program intends to explore how the workforce views diversity when hiring and what if anything can be done by either side to increase hiring. There was recent media attention surrounding a comment made by an African American television personality in which she stated she wouldn’t hire someone with a ‘ghetto name’. This drew our attention to how minorities are judged before even starting the race. Despite these individuals’ intelligence, academic achievements, or professional experience and qualification- a name or unique appearance may be what prevents them from securing the job that they deserve; it’s important that we are open-minded and culturally accepting of one another because individual differences may offer an entirely new perspective to the problem at hand. 

     

    Speakers:

     

    Roula Allouch, Liberty Mutual, Erlanger, KY

    Ivan Lowe, York Tech College, Rock Hill, SC
