Excellent article Jen- you introduce and expand on the concept of conscious and unconscious bias eloquently. Really zesty, passionate, succinct writing. Admire the all-lower-case style too, actually emphasises your message.

I've written an article titled "You Don't Know What You Don't Know" based on learnings from Matthew Syed's "Rebel Ideas" which focuses more on the question of WHY diversity is important as opposed to your view of HOW to make diversity happen. I think it complements your piece perfectly and I would love it if you could provide me with some feedback.
