Systemic discrimination

HR Glossary

Systemic discrimination

Sometimes called institutionalised discrimination, these are businesses practices that build patterns of discrimination or disadvantage for particular groups into the normal operations of the business. This is often not necessarily intentional. For example, a business may only recruit from a particular university which has a high proportion of students from wealthy families. This disadvantages or discourages potential applicants from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
