German warning in occupied Poland — "No entrance for Poles! Slavicorigin were not allowed to join some guilds. At first the laws were aimed primarily at Jews but were later extended to "Gypsies, Negroes and their bastard offspring".
When Waleed Aly raised the spectre of unconscious bias in his Logies speech, it struck a chord. My name is Mustafa.
The issue is unconscious bias in employment. However, unconscious bias - the unintentional application of discrimination based on a subconscious layer of prejudice - is as hard to identify in yourself as it is in other people. There are tons of research data supporting the conclusion that unconscious bias is a universal and profoundly influential phenomenon.
To take one random example: It turned out that this was not because more women were applying, or playing instruments, or because those conducting the auditions had become less sexist.
When Waleed Aly raised the spectre of unconscious bias in his Logies speech, it struck a chord. It's an issue my workplace has been exploring in a very practical way, and the results of our. The practice of multiculturalism in modern liberal democracies has been hampered by lack of a clear definition of 'racism' and 'anti-racism' as well as confusion about the role of multiculturalism. [Edit 3/ I no longer endorse all the statements in this document. I think many of the conclusions are still correct, but especially section 1 is weaker than it should be, and many reactionaries complain I am pigeonholing all of them as agreeing with Michael Anissimov, which they do .
An Australian National University study in produced a stunning outcome. Four thousand fake job applications were sent to employers who had advertised low-level jobs. The applications were identical except for one thing: A variety of obviously "ethnic" names were used. Looking around you is also instructive.
Given that the educational and talent requirements for being a "face" on commercial television are, well, idiosyncratic, there are only two realistic explanations for the monochrome spectacle: Anyway, armed with all this troubling research, in our business we started thinking about whether we were as afflicted by unconscious bias, when employing new staff, as everyone else seemed to be.
We like to think of ourselves as an equal opportunity employer - we have always been more than 70 per cent female and boast an impressively diverse range of ethnic backgrounds. But we were wondering whether, nevertheless, we still exclude good people for bad reasons. This year we ran a "blind" application process.
The applicants were required to post their applications to us with no identifying information other than a mobile number - no name, gender, address, no school or university names - none of the usual things by which we ordinarily identify ourselves in social terms.
All we were left with was what they chose to tell us. We then selected 30 out of the applicants for interview. The result has been informative.
The other difference is that the cohort of interviewees has a significantly higher than usual representation from the less established law schools. We know now therefore that, without realising it, we have been applying a bias in favour of some not all of the older, more "prestigious" law schools more precisely, those we think are the best based on our own subjective experiences.
It reminds me of the TV show "Suits", in which a glamorised fictitious law firm hires exclusively graduates of Harvard.
It has an element of truth. Our TV screens are missing most of the beautiful, colourful diversity of this amazing nation we share.As a direct consequence, the war over college admissions has become astonishingly fierce, with many middle- or upper-middle class families investing quantities of time and money that would have seemed unimaginable a generation or more ago, leading to an all-against-all arms race that immiserates the student and exhausts the parents.
Discrimination, Racism, and Poverty The United States is a country where concerns about discrimination, racism, and poverty are pervasive. When I interviewed Seymour Papert at MIT (Goldberg, a), I expected our conversation to be primarily about computers and LOGO, the program he devised for elementary students.
Racial segregation is the separation of people into racial or other ethnic groups in daily life. It may apply to activities such as eating in a restaurant, drinking from a water fountain, using a public toilet, attending school, going to the movies, riding on a bus, or in the rental or purchase of a home  or of hotel rooms.
“That students can view this sort of behavior as acceptable, or even funny, demonstrates the necessity for better antisemitism and anti-racism education in Australia and on our university.
Gender Discrimination in the Workplace - It is not up for debate whether women are discriminated against in the workplace, it is evident in census data; in , among full-time, year-round workers, women were paid 78 percent of what men were paid.
