Level Playing Field Institute on August 30th, 2010

Five leading tech companies have signed on as participants in Level Playing Field Institute’s (LPFI) latest research study:  Understanding Bias and Fairness in Information Technology Environments. Cisco, Mozilla, Wikimedia, OpenCandy, and Get Satisfaction have each committed to participating in the study, which will look at how different groups in IT work environments perceive bias and unfairness in hiring, performance reviews, and bonus decisions and how companies can create more productive and equitable workplaces by removing hidden bias. 

LPFI Executive Director, Robert Schwartz: “Each of these companies appreciates that creating a more fair and equitable workplace helps to retain employees, increase productivity and improve their bottom line.  Our research comes at a critical time as Silicon Valley must respond to the notable decrease of African-Americans, Latinos and women in the tech workforce.”

We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere.

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels.
