Laura Mather, founder and CEO of Unitive, is creating software to eliminate unconscious bias from corporate recruiting. Mather also aims to remove unconscious bias from human resource departments across the board--especially with respect to hiring and promotion processes. Why? The financial benefits are proven. According to a series of recent studies from MIT economists, diversity in the workplace bolsters productivity, innovation and ultimately the bottom line. TheStreet's Olivia Zaleski sat down with the software developer at this year's Techonomy Conference in Silicon Valley to learn how exactly bias may be hurting your business; and how you can use cutting-edge software, like Unitive, to recruit for a more balanced--and ultimately better--workforce.
