Event Details

Having an unconscious bias doesn’t make you a bad person—it just means you’re human. When most people think of bias, they think of a negative action taken deliberately. But there are unconscious or implicit biases that can affect your behavior or decisions without you realizing it. Unconscious biases are often based on mistaken, inaccurate, or incomplete information. These biases can have a significant impact on our workplaces, shaping who gets recruited, hired, and promoted. 

It’s possible, however, to interrupt bias. The first step is awareness. This discussion will address the most common types of unconscious bias, along with tactics you can use to ensure workplace decisions (like hiring and interviewing) aren’t being guided by individual biases. 

Attendees discuss approaches to developing an inclusive workplace and will walk away with tools for self-discovery of recognizing one’s own biases and build an awareness to avoid biases and how to interrupt them when they do show up.
