Addressing Unconscious Bias Lunch ‘n’ Learn Presented by Elaine Newman, Founder and CEO, Global Learning

20150602 - Global Learning - Unconscious Bias Image - Brain Process Speed


Everyone has bias; it is part of who we are. Bias is best described as a mental shortcut: we often use readily available thoughts and personal views to help us make decisions and establish opinions. The problem with biased thinking is that it frequently leads to an inaccurate understanding of a person or a situation. This inaccuracy can mean we see a person or a situation in a more positive way or a more negative way which impacts our choices around innovation, hiring, engagement, management, promotion and our overall interactions within our teams and organization as a whole.  Come to this hour long introductory session on the fundamentals of unconscious bias and how it impacts our actions and reactions in our workplace and marketplace.


Bring your own lunch and listen to Elaine Newman, Founder and CEO of Global Learning Addressing Unconscious Bias!

How to choose a Meeting Room in Toronto


IMG_0653Inspections for choosing a meeting room provider can be particularly nerve racking. Agreed. However, we’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be and here are a few short and sweet tips.

Put yourself in the attendees’ shoes

Do a surprise tour. Pop in unannounced and save yourself the distraction of the red carpet treatment that’s doled out for a prearranged visit.

Know your parameters

Your goals and parameters should ideally dictate the facilities you end up choosing. If you want to have excitement and interaction then your venue should have theatre capabilities and suitable tech support. If you are conducting training then you will do better with a location that can eliminate interuptions and has sound proof walls in each room.

Is there dedicated IT support? If not , are you able to risk running into a technical hitch right before your meeting begins and not have dedicated IT staff on hand?

Make a note of all the things that are important to you such as catering options that fit your budget, amenities, view and flexibility.

Take a closer look

Conduct a deep analysis to compare sites’ strengths and weakness. Evaluate locations based on relevant factors such as proximity to public transport, restaurants, parking, airports etc

How safe are the surroundings and how easy is it to get around if your attendees decide to leave the meeting room site?
