Unconscious biases are a fact of life. Everyone has them and takes them into the workplace. Unconscious or implicit biases in the workplace can stymie diversity, recruiting and retention efforts and unintentionally shape an organization’s culture. These biases can distort talent and performance reviews. They affect who gets hired, promoted and developed and thereby unwittingly undermines an organization’s culture. This session will explore ways to examine and address implicit bias and discuss the impact of unconscious bias at work and to an organization’s culture, steps management and individuals can take to uncover and minimize the effects of unconscious bias and learn about organizations attempting to address unconscious biases.
