Designing Equitable Performance: How to Create Fair, Inclusive Assessments

Speaker: Aubrey Blanche & Sahra Kaboli-Nejad

We are all susceptible to bias and strive to mitigate it through reading, taking classes, and participating in trainings - yet, it seems like these aren’t driving the change we need. Women tend to receive vague, personality-based feedback, where men tend to receive performance related feedback. Work completed by Black men is more likely to be rated as lower quality than White men. And Black women face these overlapping biases in even more extreme ways. So what can we do to address the inequities in the system? Look at the system itself - are we designing an equitable performance system that benefits everyone? Join Culture Amp’s Global Head of Equitable Design and Impact, Aubrey Blanche, along with Diversity, Equity, and Belonging Lead Sahra Kaboli-Nejad, to discuss how we can re-evaluate our performance management systems. We will discuss the benefits of designing a system at every level (individual, manager, and organization) to help mitigate bias and ultimately create a system that finally succeeds at what it is supposed to do - improve performance.

Ask Amelia: How do you get managers engaged?


Dear Amelia, I know managers play a key role in employees’ engagement, but how do you keep managers engaged? I find one of the best ways to keep your leaders at all levels engaged in your organization is to show them the “what’s in it for me.” So I coach leaders to find connecting points; connect leaders around the organizational goals and connect teams and then individuals into those goals. Then praise, praise, praise! Celebrate milestones as the team approaches those organizational goals.

5 tips to create the one thing your competitors can’t steal


The best part about visiting small towns (like Napa or Martha’s Vineyard) is the fact that they are small. Not all small towns are created equal, but the best ones have happy residents that choose to stay. These towns avoid the mainstream and attract visitors based on originality and personal feel that big cities can’t compete against. The same thing goes for small companies that have developed a unique culture, because it unites employees and inspires them beyond individual responsibilities.
