Hired! – Beware of biases By Gathri Gopalakrishnan   Diversity means different things to different people. There are several dimensions of diversity – age, gender, religion, disability etc. In a short survey of employees from two companies in India (Jubilant and CYC), it was found that “Recruitment” was considered to be the top priority in terms of diversity and inclusion initiatives irrespective of the dimensions of diversity.
