Featured Program
  • Bias: Understanding to Mitigation to Intentionality, September 22nd: Individual and systemic changes are needed to drive culture, engagement, and bottom-line impacts. This discussion will focus on identifying biases in practice, policies, and processes so that your team can address systemic and institutionalized bias in organizations. Our panel of changemakers will dive into the following: 

  • Understanding: What is the interplay between how our brains function and bias – “To be human is to have bias.”
  • Mitigation: Change Your Thinking or Change your Actions? Discuss the process to change actions (and thus impacts) when you recognize biased thinking.
  • Intentionality: Proactively interrupt biased actions – e.g., being a vocal ally, be courageous, revaluate hiring, promotion, and performance review processes.
