GUEST BLOG: Structural Racism and Unconscious Bias

We unfortunately, do not live in an equal society. Many people face prejudice and discrimination every day - whether open or hidden, deliberate or inadvertent - because of their race, faith, gender, sexuality, age, disability, or other aspects of their background or identity

This is a tough one all round, given that we all miss important details from time to time and no doubt regret some of those misses. However, I just wanted to let you see some of the bloopers we see as part of the tender submissions from a whole variety of bidders.
