Women in IT: The Unconscious Bias

Women in IT: The Unconscious Bias

Cover

 

 

Gillian Arnold, chair of BCSWomen and founder of Tectre, explains how understanding ‘Unconscious Bias’ can help organisations raise their levels of diversity, in this presentation for Computer Weekly’s Most Influential Women in IT awards

 

Understanding the impact of ‘Unconscious Bias’ is important to management within organisations which are trying to raise their levels of diversity. Gillian Arnold outlines the topic and how it can be introduced to the senior and middle management within a company to ensure that these senior figures, who wield the power to hire, appraise and fire, are fully aware of the impact of their underlying mind-set.

 

Gillian has extensive experience in the IT industry and setup her own IT services and staffing company, Tectre in late 2009. Most of Gillian’s early career was spent working for IBM in the UK and she held customer facing technical, sales, business development, strategic marketing and consultancy roles. She currently sits on the board of directors for the UKRC for Women in Science, Engineering and Technology, and is chair of the British Computer Society group for its female members; BCSWomen.
