Managing Unconscious Bias: Elevating the Mind to Support Inclusion

What You’ll Learn

When you meet someone, what are your initial assumptions? Do these assumptions affect the way you interact with them? Our brains naturally place people into large groups or categories. These assumptions are helpful to some yet harmful to others. In business, subtle and unconscious biases can become significant roadblocks to fair and inclusive diversity practices. We gravitate toward certain types of people or simply forget to acknowledge others.

These biases promote racial, gender, and cultural stereotypes that diminish the contributions of the team. How do we become examples of fair and inclusive practices? How do we challenge our culture to move toward greater levels of awareness?

Studies have shown that professionals become less biased toward others when discussing needs and are forced to challenge assumptions. Unmanaged bias impacts every decision that we make as professionals. This learning lab will challenge your personal biases and address ways to test faulty thinking and increase cultural awareness.
