Join us for a highly interactive session where two National Center for Women & Information Technology NCWIT social scientists will share compelling data about the importance of understanding your unconscious biases. The data will show the profound impact biases have on our decisions and outcomes, followed by thought provoking activities and discussion on tools and practical strategies for busting your own and others’ biases. In order to implement systemic change in removing biases from our decision-making, we need to raise awareness, increase our knowledge, and build capacity for individuals and organizations.
Catherine Ashcraft and Brad McLain will present the research and provide practical resources proven to successfully break down stereotypes.
Participants will leave with information to use immediately in their own organizations.
This program is recommended for all HR professionals, business leaders, and educational professionals.
