May 11 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am

Agenda:

7:30 – 8:00am Announcements

8:00 – 9:00am Presentation

Topic: Unconscious Bias

This workshop offers an introduction to how human beings operate with unconscious bias. Description Research on decision-making reveals that when individuals are highly aware of their decision-making process, they can see how non-determinant data influences their thinking. This awareness mitigates bias in decision-making by giving them access to a more extensive set of choices to reach their intended outcomes. Experiential learning is an integral component of the workshops and the participant development process. The workshops include simulated experiences that transform participant behaviors through awareness. The experiential learning model builds insights by having participants do the actions in a training space to reduce decision-making bias. Learning Objectives In this initial workshop, participants will learn what unconscious bias is and how it affects their workplace relationships and decision-making.

Through this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn how priming bias works.
  • See how bias can affect their choices at work.
  • Conduct a personal social network analysis.
  • Develop new practices and skills to minimize bias in business decisions.
  • Learn how unconscious bias affects diversity and business strategy.
  • Develop a business case to integrate diversity strategy throughout organization.

Participants will explore the following questions:

  • What is bias?
  • How does bias affect our lives and the workplace?
  • What biases do I have?
  • What tools are available to me to reduce the effects of bias in my workplace?
