There is significant data on the benefits of hiring employees with a wide range of talents, backgrounds, and perspectives. However, differences in language, culture, generation, and social viewpoints can make workplace and personal interactions difficult. Succeeding in navigating these differences requires understanding our own unconscious biases in working with others. This class will explore current thinking and research about the effect of unconscious bias in interviewing, hiring practices, and in creating workplaces that benefit from diversity and inclusive practices.


  • Introduce the concepts of diversity and inclusion
  • Create awareness of unconscious bias in our interactions with others
  • Discuss how to recognize and navigate differences in viewpoints
