Blind Spots-We ALL Have Them: The Impact of Implicit and Unconscious Bias

Thursday, 3 September 2020 – 12 Noon EDT (GMT-4)

Our brain takes in 11 million bits of information per second, but is only able to fully process 40 bits. The information we filter affects how and why we make the decisions we do. Learn more about the impact of implicit and unconscious bias has on our decision-making and how we can actively shift our behavior, attitudes and actions to ensure we are engaging from a place of greater awareness.

Takeaways include the following:

  • Participants will learn how to manage their bias when making business decisions impacting employees
  • Participants will learn how societal and political issues impact our bias, and develop actions to remain mindful at all times
  • Participants will learn proven strategies to minimize unconscious & implicit bias, microaggressions and intersectionality
