"Diversity & Exclusion?
How digital tools revolutionise HR"
Diversity and inclusion are crucial for an ecosystem of innovation. Companies face mounting pressure for change from within and without. Yet when it comes to implementation, attracting and retaining a diverse team proves challenging. New technologies are being developed to support HR in overcoming unconscious biases, flagging inequalities in pay or sourcing talent from minority groups. HR technology can be a strong ally to drive diversity and inclusion, so what technology exists and what ethical pitfalls do we need to look out for? Do new tools also lead to new forms of exclusion and discrimination?
