At PwC, diversity and inclusion is a priority because we need the best available talent to create value for our clients, people and communities. We hire and nurture professionals with a variety of approaches to problem-solving, who are willing to challenge the status quo, who think differently from one another, and who come from many different backgrounds and cultures. To solve important problems we need to be inclusive of our diverse talent and use the power of our differences to achieve our goals.
Experts tell us that our unconscious mind makes a majority of our decisions. It creates blind spots—unconscious biases that can narrow your vision and potentially influence your behaviors.
Our brains are wired to make assumptions, which can sometimes be off base. We think it’s an honest mistake; science calls it a blind spot.
First impressions can block objectivity, which can cause missed opportunities. Sometimes wanting to be “right” can take us in the wrong direction.
Stereotypes can influence our perception of who’s the “right fit.” They may create a road block towards our destination.
It’s natural to gravitate towards people who are like us. But making decisions solely on who we’re comfortable with can cause tunnel vision.
