Breaking the Code of Interview Implicit Bias to Value Different Gender Competencies

Bonita Banducci, Banducci Consulting
Live at Santa Clara University - Room #330C located on the 3rd floor of the Learning Commons

Voices 2015 - www.globaltechwomen.com

Session Length: 1 hour

Implicit Bias Workshops and exercises are being shared widely on the internet. Some of the solutions are:
"Determine precisely what skills and attributes you are hiring for."
"Ask exactly the same questions to each candidate."

But what about the implicit bias in determining what skills you are valuing--beyond traditional management and leadership competencies?
How can interviewers recognize the often invisible, unarticulated, undervalued and often misinterpreted competencies of more "relational and collectivist" people--often women and men and women from different cultures?

Bonita Banducci teaches Gender and Engineering class in Santa Clara University's School of Engineering Graduate Program. In video and cartoon representation as well as in person, her students apply Gender Competence®--understanding and skills to work with gender (and cultural) differences as competencies--to job interviews both as the interviewer and the interviewee, as men and women. They show how to "mine the gold" of difference for the best candidate AND to get the job as the best candidate while establishing the value of relational competencies in the workplace and marketplace.
