On Thursday, 12 September AmCham EU hosted a Gender Initiatives breakfast on strategies to fight unconscious bias. Studies show that nearly 40% of people have unconscious biases against particular genders and ethnicities (Cornish and Jones, 2011). These biases can hinder progress on diversity and inclusion within both the public and private sector. This breakfast event sought to explore unconscious bias from various perspectives and identify strategies to address it.
