In today’s workplace, blatant discrimination has mostly been relegated to the dustbin of America’s past. However, in this book Freada Kapor Klein shows how even well-intentioned people can harbor unconscious biases that perpetuate stereotypes. Each year more than two million professionals and managers leave their jobs, pushed out from the pressure of small comments, whispered jokes, and not-so-funny emails.
Giving Notice is an eye-opening examination of the causes and dynamics of bias in the workplace, offering a psychological, political, and societal analysis of the actual cost of bias to the bottom line. In it, Kapor Klein lays out five key strategies as part of a comprehensive approach to addressing inclusion within tech companies. The book is filled with sensible approaches for solving the current imbalance and challenges us to rethink unconscious ideas about stereotypes and commonly accepted business practices.
