Scenario 1: Biased Leadership Development Assessments
XYZ Corporation has introduced new hire assessments into their leadership development program. All new leaders must complete the assessment prior to participating in the second stage of the leadership program. No women or minorities have ever made it passing the first stage of the leadership development program because there are gender and culturally biased questions on the assessment. Linda has just been hired as HRD manager to oversee the leadership development program and upon discovering the bias in the assessment, it is her job to inform management, consisting of all white males, about the assessment bias.
How can Linda help eliminate assessment bias against women and minority leaders?
Is it the role of HRD professionals to determine assessment bias?
