This team is looking for
Have you ever been in a group, you’ve shared an idea, and no one heard it? Then, subconsciously or not, someone else shares the exact same idea and everyone’s into it? A very similar experience happens often for women in the workplace, where their ideas are undervalued compared to men’s ideas. Male execs tend to have higher competent ratings when they share ideas, but women who share ideas tend to have lower competence ratings. Women in the workplace experience more pushback, receive less feedback, and are asked for their input less than men overall. Veil aims to provide a space for inclusive ideation. This is through only positive forms of anonymity, giving everyone a fair shot at being heard by eliminating institutionalized biases. The identity of any author would only be revealed to the manager or leader of the group once ideas are chosen.
