Unconscious bias impacts our daily lives in significant, but hardly noticeable ways. From the selection of board members to the hiring of staff, unconscious bias has a way of creeping into important organizational decisions. Combat the role that unconscious bias has in your workplace.
Session DetailsDetailed Description
Unconscious bias can be defined as a pre-judgment, bias, or discrimination by an individual based on race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. We all have unconscious biases to some degree and they impact our daily lives and the ways that our organizations function from the board of directors to frontline staff. This 60-minute session will explore the role of unconscious bias in the hiring and recruitment processes and its impact on culture. More globally, we will discuss concrete actions that individuals and organizations can take to create a more inclusive environment for staff, participants, board members, and the community at large.Target Audience
