Unconscious Bias: Understand, Define, Mitigate (Registration required | Inscription requise)

Everyone has bias; it is part of who we are. Bias is best described as a mental shortcut: we often use readily available thoughts and personal views to help us make decisions and establish opinions. Even among knowledgeable and well-intentioned career professionals, hidden blind spots affect our attitudes and perceptions of ourselves, our clients and our teams – and govern our behaviours as a result. Join Elaine Newman, one of North America’s top unconscious bias training providers, as we learn how unconscious bias can create barriers for success that we didn’t even know existed and what we can do about it.

In this workshop, with opportunity for self-reflection, you will:
  • Develop an understanding of the origins and social impacts of bias
  • Define the key concepts and types of unconscious bias, and why it’s important to you and your organization
  • Practice strategies and leverage tools that can assist in recognizing and mitigating unconscious bias as it relates to decision-making, evaluation, management, communication and interpersonal and group interactions
