Unconscious Bias Is Happening Where You Least Expect It: At Your Workplace

Recently, PayScale released data that show the gap between men and women's perceptions of equal opportunity at work. Based on 140,000 individual responses to the PayScale Salary Survey, the report showed that 75 percent of men say there's equal opportunity for men and women in their workplace – but only 51 percent of women say the same. The perception gap is even worse at tech companies, with 80 percent of men, but only 44 percent of women, saying that women have equal opportunities at their employer.
