Mitchell Services applies deep global diversity & inclusion experience to develop strategies to intentionally disrupt the subtle and not so subtle business processes propagating gender inequity. These strategies are known as bias interrupters.
We work with companies to collect detailed data on gender bias; identify measures to define the effect; strategies on bias interrupters to move the metrics; execute; and then measure again. Bias interrupters are iterative, allowing companies to try small interventions and then scale them up. Bias interrupters build change into business systems such as how people are hired, how work is assigned, what happens during performance evaluations, and how compensation is determined. Mitchell Services consulting framework leverages Acker’s Gendered Organisations theory targeting four dimensions to address diversity & inclusion bias interrupters:
