Traditional approaches to promoting diversity in the workplace have centered on addressing this discriminatory conduct, but what about biased and unfair systems, practices and habits that we may not even be aware of? Learn how we can become aware of our natural prejudices that affect the way we hire, form teams, support leaders and other daily critical decisions. This awareness can lead to clarity on how we can create a more diverse, creative, and fair workplace.

Learner Outcomes:

  • What is unconscious bias- the neuroscience behind it and how we all have it.
  • How hidden bias manifests in organizations and why it is dangerous.
  • Group exercise to bring awareness to how we all have bias.
  • Practical steps to take to begin overcoming hidden bias.
