NHRC Employee Relations Round Table - 02-11-2021 - Recognizing and Interrupting Unconscious Bias in the Workplace
Thursday, February 11, 2021, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM CST
Category: NHRC Employee Relations Round Table

What is unconscious bias and why does it matter? Research shows that despite our best intentions we all have unintentional biases. Many influences, past and present, shape these subtle unconscious attitudes and thoughts, some of which contradict our conscious beliefs about equality and fairness. Unconscious biases affect our decision-making and can have a profound impact in the workplace on personnel decisions, retention, morale, productivity and equal opportunity. Unconscious bias training enables us to learn how to recognize and interrupt our unconscious biases so we all can make better, fairer decisions and our companies can accomplish business goals more effectively. Join us for an overview of unconscious bias training, including why and how to implement it, and ways your company could benefit from a greater awareness of unconscious bias.
