WWEST has published two White Papers, and posted them on our webpage.
“Unconscious Bias” addresses the assumptions and conclusions we jump to without thinking.
Several studies demonstrate the impact unconscious bias can have on the hiring process, particularly for women.
For example, to be seen as equally “competent” by reviewers, female researchers need to publish 3 more articles in Nature/Science, or 20 more articles in specialist journals, than male applicants when applying for a medical fellowship.
“Mentoring Works” explains what workplace mentoring programs can look like, what conditions are necessary for successful mentoring relationships, and tools for mentoring relationships.
