How Managers Can Make Casual Networking Events More Inclusive
Research on affinity bias shows that we are naturally drawn to people who are like us. A casual drink here, a few networking events there with like-minded colleagues isn’t so bad, right?

Part of the solution is to invite people from underrepresented backgrounds to these kinds of events. The other solution is one that can create lasting change for diversity and inclusion: to organize inclusive events that welcome employees from all backgrounds. Read More

Yet success at school and university is not translating into the workplace as much as it should. Read more
