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!
