From intolerant jokes, to disparaging comments, to exclusion from meetings—workplace bias takes different forms, according to a study released March 21.

Judith Honesty, CEO of Honesty Consulting in Chicago, and David Maxfield, vice president of research at VitalSmarts, a leadership training company in Salt Lake City, conducted the study of 500 people who said they had been discriminated against in the workplace. 

Maxfield also is the co-author of Influencer: The New Science of Leading Change (McGraw-Hill Education, 2013) and the New York Times bestseller Crucial Accountability: Tools for Resolving Violated Expectations, Broken Commitments, and Bad Behavior (McGraw-Hill Education, 2013).
