Re: Something smells wrong
I admit it, I have a very heavy unconscious bias towards competent people.
I work in international teams. I don't know what skin colour people have and their code doesn't come with genitals. I care about the contribution that they make, and that includes their ability to work effectively with other members of the team. Since my teams all have a culture of respect and collaboration, it's quite easy to find people that fit well.
Do I have unconscious biases against people? Yes, I instinctively dislike the racist sexists that demand you employ someone other than a white man. I've yet to hear any of them give a good reason.
