A Conversation about Unconscious Bias and its Effect in the Workplace

Session Description:

Abstract: “Human beings are consistently, routinely, and profoundly biased. And, we are not only profoundly biased, but we almost never know we are being biased.” This interactive session is designed to help attendees enhance their understanding and recognition of unconscious bias (also called hidden or implicit bias), as well as develop practical tools for addressing unconscious bias in the workplace.

Goals and Learning Objectives:

Human beings are consistently, routinely, and profoundly biased. And, we are not only profoundly biased, but we almost never know we are being biased.” This interactive session is designed to help attendees enhance their understanding and recognition of unconscious bias (often also called hidden or implicit bias). Learning to identify unconscious bias is a first step to reducing such bias in the workplace. Attendees will also have the opportunity to consider and develop practical tools to address unconscious bias in the workplace.
