Mitigating Unconscious Bias in Hiring Practices

Unconscious biases or preferences often impact the way we lead. And, although we are all subject to unconscious bias, when asked about it, most people respond, “I’m not biased.”

Everyone has blind spots that risk impacting both hiring and talent management practices.

During this 90-minute interactive workshop, participants will:

Define unconscious bias and the science behind it.

Explore when we are most susceptible to unconscious bias and how it can impact decision-making and interactions with others.

Recognize impact of unconscious bias in hiring practices.

Gain tools to manage unconscious bias.

Strategize ways to mitigate the impact of biases on reaching goals and objectives.
