Report finds patterns of bias in performance reviews of women

Women, and especially women of color, face clear biases in their performance reports, with managers more likely to reduce their success to stereotypes, according to a new report from language software company Textio.

The company took language from performance reviews across employees and analyzed it to reveal the level and prevalence of bias across different groups of employees. 

It found that women were 11 times more likely to be called abrasive compared to men. Black women were also four times more likely to be called an overachiever compared to white men and Asian men were seven times more likely to be called a genius or brilliant compared to Latina women. Black and Latin people were also called passionate in their reports far more often than white or Asian people.
