Is Your Perception My Reality? Exploring Unconsious Bias

Until recently, a commonly held understanding was that only “bad” people are prejudiced so many of our diversity efforts focused on identifying these individuals and changing their beliefs. However, evidence from Harvard University, among others, now reveals that we all we inadvertently make assumptions and decisions that impact some groups more adversely than others. It is thus important for leaders to be aware of unconsciously held beliefs and how these biases might impact their decision making on a day to day basis. Through a process of self-discovery, discussion and activity, in this half day course, participants will:
  • Understand and describe Unconscious Bias

  • Develop an internal awareness of how unconscious bias is created

  • Discuss the impact of Bias at within organizations

  • Discuss concrete opportunities to minimize bias
