What is Hidden Bias, and How Do I Overcome It?

In this research-driven presentation, participants will learn what hidden bias is and how it relates to prejudice, discrimination and racism. Participants will be encouraged to determine what their unconscious biases are by thinking about how we learn these biases. Discover why unconscious bias matters and how it expresses itself, especially in the workplace. Finally, participants will be given practical advice as to how we can best overcome our hidden bias. This is an encore presentation and counts as training toward the Diversity Certificate program.
