Panel Discussion

Humanity or technology - what’s the key to a more Inclusive hiring, promotion, and retention?

Perfecting protocols lead to real results. Numerous organizations have resorted to new technologies that make the applicant screening process more efficient. However, what is the protocol that the algorithm follows? How adequate are the presumptions on which our screening technology operates? As in life, so in algorithms, organizations risk overlooking non-inclusive biases spilling over into the automated processes. Moreover, as final decisions are still made by individuals, organizations must be aware that every decision made solely is inevitably affected by individual biases. Find out what problems are faced by teams around the world by unarticulated protocols, be they technological or human.

LGBTQ+ safe culture: is reversing homophobia at the C-level the key to progress?

Expert studies suggest that more than half of LGBTQ+ employees still hide their identities in the workplace. Although tolerance and acceptance are becoming increasingly normalized, equal treatment and the number of opportunities is still far away from the standard. Despite significant progress in increasing LGBTQ+ visibility and acceptance, the general corporate culture around the world still has miles to go.
