About the Webinar
Our brains are getting hit with 11 million bits of information every second, and in order to process all of that, they learn to take short cuts. Those short cuts can help keep us out of harm’s way (“That boiling water is hot! Don’t touch it.”), but they can also lead to snap judgments about others that result in what we call “unconscious bias.” Despite the negative connotation, it doesn't mean we are bad people. In fact, everyone has some unconscious bias. While avoiding a pot of boiling water is a good result of our brain’s quick thinking, when it comes to how we view others, we often jump to incorrect or unfair conclusions that negatively affect how we treat each other. In this webinar, we will define the various forms of bias, learn how to recognize our own implicit biases, and learn the practical skills to counteract them in order to create a more safe, respectful, and fair workplace.
