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:

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.
