The Failure of Anti-Bias Training: Is Employee Engagement the Solution ?

20180304_202223.jpgEarlier this year, my wife and I seized the opportunity to travel to Doha, Qatar to visit our son who was stationed at nearby Al Udeid Air Force Base. It was a remarkable experience. We toured the Souq Waqif (photo above), the Pearl20180306_133717.jpg (photo at right) and the Museum of Islamic Art (photo at below left), tasted the international cuisine, soaked up some sun, and swam in the Persian GulfThumbnail image for 20180305_180220.jpg. As we engaged with those we met, we realized that despite our differences, we shared many things in common. We all seem to enjoy a good meal with friends and family, basking in the sun (photo below at left)Thumbnail image for 20180307_164434.jpg, and Coca-Cola (photo below at right)20180305_120046.jpg, to name a few. Though our visit was brief, we left with a better understanding of the people living and working there.

Target Settlement Sheds Light on Disparate Impact Discrimination

By now, you've probably read or heard about Target Corporation's agreement to pay $2.8 million to settle an EEOC discrimination charge. Unlike a "disparate treatment" case where the plaintiffs claim that an employer's actions were motivated by discriminatory intent, this was a "disparate impact" case where the EEOC alleged that screening tests used by Target disproportionately excluded applicants on the basis of race and gender and violated the Americans with Disabilities Act.
