In the 2nd video with Martin Blackburn (UK People Director at KPMG), Martin looks at the implementation process of a diversity and inclusion programme in the workplace.
Martin looks at how to run diversity through your people processes and the importance of diversity being part of the DNA of the employee lifecycle.
Martin digs deeper into the way KPMG write interview questions, for example, and also exit interviews, to see if there are areas of focus that KPMG is looking at or not looking at diversity in a specific way.
Finally, Martin looks at unconscious bias and the psychological process in which we built up pictures in our heads, that we believe are the truth. The realisation is that we all have biases and it's all about understanding them so that when we understand them, you can then know when they impact the decisions you are making.
