Thanks so much for your interest in this particular episode. Since bias has many different faces, sizes, complexities, and issues, it's hard to talk about them in one episode. Sheila Caldwell, Ed. D. is the Advisor to the President on Diversity at the University of North Georgia.

She is the eyes and ears for the University on all things for diversity and inclusion and reports directly to the President of the University. I was happy she agreed to come on and share her journey in mitigating bias as well as the university students.

Today, I am sharing with my conversation with Kristen Pressner. This show is a slight departure from straight job search advice or should any of this show have practicals to apply to your job search. You'll glean a few things, but this is to self-examine and become more self-aware of your own biases. I hope you'll consider looking at yourself, remember we're not navigating hiring barriers. My guest, Kristen Pressner (@KPressner), Global Head Human Resources Roche Diagnostics, is sharing her story of how she was biased toward other women while making a business decision.

You know we've discussed unconscious bias several times this year. This show adds to the discussion.

I want to hear from you of how this episode resonates with you. Here are places you can add to the conversation at large:

  • Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822, or text your comments to the same number
  • Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message

The Beyonce Syndrome. Our definition of the show is about the career woman who has it all and does it all. Many feel it's not enough to achieve the recognition for women to gain the same opportunities as men. Janine Truitt and Chris Fields are back on the show to discuss why it affects people of color much more.

We would love your perspectives on this episode.
