Acquire best practices for keeping a competent working environment free of the pervasive implicit biases that show up in hiring, interviewing, onboarding, coaching and mentoring.  Participants will learn exactly what the difference is between discrimination, prejudice, racism, implicit biases and how to not only recognize these behaviors but also counter them effectively.

Learning Objectives:
  • Grasp what implicit bias is and where it comes from
  • Understand our own biases and how to counter them with respect and effectiveness
  • Differentiate between discrimination, prejudice, racism and bias
  • Learn how biases effect our work environments
