Implicit bias is costly: employees that perceive and experience bias are 3x more likely to leave their current job within a year, and 2.5x more likely to feel unempowered to share innovations and solutions, costing the industry billions of dollars each year. ⊃1; Meanwhile, companies that boast diverse boards and executive teams outperform competitors by 33%. ⊃2; And yet, while many recognize the need to address bias and improve diversity and inclusion in their own organizations, many professionals feel ill-equipped to recognize and address their personal and organizational blind spots.
Understanding Implicit Bias is a 2-hour virtual workshop focused on helping participants increase awareness around their own unconscious bias and gain strategies for reducing the effect of bias in the workplace. Through engaging and highly interactive discussions, polls, and exercises, participants develop trust while better understanding how their actions can be shaped by implicit, unfair, or uninformed habits of thought.
This workshop is useful for teams (or individuals at any level) that want to foster an environment of inclusion in the workplace, that understand biases exist and can be changed, and that want to contribute to a professional environment where ideas and talent are harnessed to drive team effectiveness, creativity, and growth.
