Making Assumptions Based on a Name

We all know the dangers that come from making assumptions based on one aspect of a person - such as their name. People want to be seen as whole people and our name is just one part of who we are. This kind of bias can be very subtle and we may not even realize that it is being done. So, as we think about putting this into action, let’s support all of employees in the appropriate pronunciation of their names and to watching any biases that start from someone’s name.
