Before we can influence others, we first need to understand what influences us. At the root of much of human behavior are unconscious biases. Unconscious bias is a set of beliefs and assumptions we make about the world of which we may be completely unaware. They are learned stereotypes that are automatic, unintentional, deeply engrained, universal, and have a profound ability to influence our behavior.
This practical and informative session provides an overview of unconscious bias and examples of its impact in the workplace. Participants are encouraged to examine their own biases and assumptions in order to make more considered and consistent decisions. This session will further explore how biased decision making can be problematic, and potentially create legal liability for your organization.
