    Understanding Unconscious Bias

    Presented by Andrew Botwin

    “It’s them, not me!”  Many employees believe issues of bias are the result of other people, not themselves.  The truth is, we ALL HAVE BIAS.   As an HR community, the interest in understanding bias has grown over recent years. More recently, equality both in the workplace and in matters of social injustice have brought the subject to the forefront. As a result, we now have new opportunities to better understand and address this challenge. Understanding implicit bias creates possibilities to enhance relationships both in the community and within our organizations. As human resource professionals, organizations will expect and/or ask you to take a leadership role.  Are you, as an HR leader, prepared and ready to better educate your employees? This interactive session will frame the conversation to further educate you on the truths around bias, offer explanations about different ways bias can manifest itself, and lead to discussions about the impact of bias on your employees and organizations.  Get prepared to more confidently take this conversation to the next level – specifically, the positive impact on the success of your organization and your communities.

    This presentation will cover the foundational groundwork discussion on bias. It will discuss how bias impacts social situations, attitudes, cultures, and emotional reactions. In addition, it will cover the impact of bias on co-workers, clients, job performance, and organizational success.
