Everyone has hiring bias—even you.

When a candidate sits at the interview table with you, they represent two people: the person they are, and the person you think they are.

The bigger the gap between reality and perception, the higher the odds of the wrong decision being made.

Bias serves to keep reality and perception apart.

Bridge the gap by keeping your biases in check through practices in self-awareness, mindfulness, and culture change.

In Mastering the Hire, the executive director of the Broad Center Chaka Booker provides strategies that will dramatically improve the one decision that determines everything you can accomplish--who you hire.
