''A world in which every single person has the exact same chance to get hired for a job. That's the world we're aiming to shape.''
” When you and I see someone, we will always see a different person. That’s because you and I have different frames of reference, fed by different biases.
Being biased is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, we can’t live our daily lives without our biases. Our brain needs to process millions of pieces of information every second, and make ten thousand decisions each and every day. Without our biases, which allow our brains to unconsciously process information and make decisions, this would be impossible.
You can’t decide whether or not to be biased. But you can decide whether or not to act upon it during the hiring process. Our unconscious biases impact our hiring process from the very start to the very end. It makes us set the wrong hiring criteria. It makes us look for the wrong people. It makes us judge people the wrong way. And it makes us hire the wrong people.
With Equalture, we want to outsmart biases from the hiring process, so that every single candidate is being provided with the exact same opportunity to get hired for a job. And science is our best friend here.
After all, while we tend to judge people based on what we can see from them, it’s actually the part that we cannot see that surprises us most. ”
