In the blink of an eye judgments are made about candidates and colleagues. Cognitive science reveals clearly the invisible but insidious impacts automatic social judgements have on everyday decisions. This workshop explores implicit bias and strategies to improve awareness.
Participants in the training will:
1. Understand the concept of implicit bias and the ways it influences social judgements.
2. Identify events and conditioning that inform implicit biases, proptype biases, and affinity biases.
3. Appreciate ways implicit biases impact recruitment, selections, and retention practices.
4. Develop tools to counter implicit bias in oneself, and educate others.
