Quotes on Breaking the Bias

  • Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough, action is needed to level the playing field.
  • This process of breaking the bias doesn’t happen overnight, and it is really about embracing discomfort.
  • In terms of the data for the UK, we know that the gender pay gap is still sadly well and alive at 15.4%
  • When we improve things for one group of people, we’re actually improving the environment for everyone.
