A survey by Korn/Ferry International found that more than 2 million people
leave their jobs each year because of unfairness in the workplace. The hiring
costs which result from high turnover are a huge stumbling block to company
success, not to mention the time investment that goes into screening applicants
and acclimating new hires to their role. Still, the greatest hindrance to
progression lies within the heart of the issue—that is, to devalue and exclude
employees because they are different is to also place limitations on their
contributions and ability to grow.
Companies that emphasize employee growth and development are more
appealing/less threatening to women. Kieran Snyder, Textio
From fundamental attribution errors to microinequities (a term coined by
researcher Mary Rowe), Diversity Awareness, explores the subtle
