HOW DO YOU SEE THE WORLD?
HOW DOES THE WORLD SEE YOU?
We invite you to participate in the Understanding Everyday Bias keynote to uncover how hidden biases in our everyday experiences affect our perception of the world and the workplace culture inside organizations.
The Understanding Everyday Bias virtual keynote gives the opportunity for groups of all sizes to learn about our unconscious bias content with interactive videos, virtual activities, and open discussion.
Engaging and Sustainable
Through a series of exercises, the Understanding Everyday Bias virtual keynote introduces learners to the effects of unconscious bias and quick judgments happening around them.
As participants learn to recognize how and why bias happens and how this impacts business performance and workplace experiences, they will also begin to practice strategies for mitigating this bias both individually and organizationally.
