  • Bias: Understanding to Mitigation to Intentionality, September 22nd: Individual and systemic changes are needed to drive culture, engagement, and bottom-line impacts.

  • Mitigation: Change Your Thinking or Change your Actions? Discuss the process to change actions (and thus impacts) when you recognize biased thinking.
