August Chapter Meeting - Uncovering Unconscious Bias

  • 10 Aug 2021
  • 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
  • Zoom Webinar


Registration is closed

Speaker: Lorne Epstein, SHRM- SCP

Topic: Uncovering Unconscious Bias

Description and Objectives

    In this initial workshop, participants learn what unconscious bias is and how it affects workplace relationships and decision-making. Research demonstrates that individuals who are highly aware of their decision-making process can see how unconscious bias influences their thinking. This awareness opens their mind to a broader set of choices and improves their ability to reach their intended outcomes.

    Lorne will help you uncover your unconscious biases. You will come to understand the unconscious influences that are limiting the scope of your decision-making. You will learn and practice techniques designed to reduce bias and help you make better choices.

    Through this workshop, participants will:

    • Learn how priming bias works.
    • See how bias can affect their choices at work.
    • Conduct a personal social network analysis.
    • Develop new practices and skills to minimize bias in business decisions.
