Unconscious Bias in Everyday Life

November 6, 2019, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EST

The unconscious mind is a powerful and intrinsic force in helping to shape our overall behavior in our everyday lives. This interactive session is designed to examine how unconscious bias can affect one’s perceptions, decisions, and interactions.

You will learn to:

  • Identify how bias and the processes of the unconscious mind can impact your decisions and results
  • Utilize strategies to practice more conscious awareness so you are better able to advocate for inclusion in your organization

You will benefit by:

  • Understanding the science and research of unconscious bias
  • Having an increased awareness of your own diverse background, and its influence on your perceptions
