Using Tech to Fight Bias
WeWork and Upful.ai partner for an educational session on how tech can help fight bias in the workplace.
We'll discuss how bias impacts employees: recruiting, project assignments, promotions and salary increases, training & development, layoff and terminations (the punishment gap), and employee retention. The good news is that we can all do something to help minimize these biases and you'll learn about it during this webinar!
Upful's mission is to help companies eliminate workplace bias, discrimination, and retaliation. Upful can make career advancement (promotions and salary increases) more equitable and inclusive by improving language in performance reviews.
