Unconscious Bias

Wednesday, September 23
Program: 5:00-5:30pmEST
Open Networking: 5:30pm-6:00pmEST

 
At any given moment, our brains are receiving 11 million pieces of information; we can only consciously process about 40 of those pieces. To process the remaining 10,999,960, we rely on our subconscious, which helps us filter information by taking mental shortcuts.

Unconscious bias refers to the information, attitudes, and stereotypes that inform our subconscious information processing and dictate the process by which we take these mental shortcuts. While unconscious information processing is a critical part of human functioning, the shortcuts we take, and the bias that informs those shortcuts, often introduce errors into our decision-making and affects the way we view and perceive others, sometimes in very dangerous ways.

This training, led by Eva W. Turner of Ogletree Deakins, will help participants better understand unconscious bias by examining how it works in the real world, and developing ways to identify and eliminate our own unconscious bias when making decisions both in and outside the office.

After the program, we invite all attendees to connect with Coalition members and friends in an open virtual networking forum for all. A Zoom link will be emailed to all participants upon registration.
