October Chapter Meeting - Recognizing & Reducing Implicit Bias Throughout Your Talent Life Cycle

  • 13 Oct 2020
  • 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
  • GoToMeeting Webinar



Speaker: Eric Ellis, M.A.

Topic: Recognizing & Reducing Implicit Bias Throughout Your Talent Life Cycle

As companies fully include talent from diverse groups, raising awareness and developing skills to both recognize unconscious bias and reduce its impact will improve talent management—from recruiting candidates to assessing and promoting leaders. This is important as a significant body of research highlights the measurable impact that bias plays in these important processes.

Francesca Gino, Harvard Business School professor says, (Biases) “cause us to make decisions in favor of one person or group to the detriment of others...which leads some of the best people managers to not recognize some of the talents, skills, and abilities of diverse employees.”

This interactive session will highlight several proven solutions participants can implement immediately to transform the effectiveness of their talent management and development systems.

Learning Objectives

  • Defining where in the talent life cycle implicit bias could have its greatest impact.
  • The key competencies necessary to recognize and mitigate the influence of individual and institutional bias. 
  • Practical tools for reducing the impact of unconscious bias in the performance appraisal process.
