1.25 SHRM PDCs, 1.25 HR Credit | Competencies: Communication, Global & Cultural Effectiveness | Intended Audience: Early Career
Workplace Application:
Get insight into how the ordinary functioning of the mind creates bias, and translate this learning into organizational impact and workplace efficiency. 

Over the past 10 years the study of unconscious bias has exploded into the diversity and inclusion field, built on breakthroughs in the neuro and cognitive sciences that provide insight into how we think and how that thinking affects our workplace efficiency. However, these insights are often misunderstood and misused in a way that perpetuates some of the challenges that organizations face. This session will reveal new research on these factors that challenges you to rethink some of the strategies that we have become all too comfortable with to allow greater collaboration and truly transform the way we work with organizational diversity, cultural competency, dimensions of power, and inclusion on both a personal and organizational level.
