Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Show Me Where My Bias Falls

2020 Annual Conference & Exposition

When we speak of building a more inclusive environment in the workplace, oftentimes we look at the general assumed biases of the collective group or known biases of individuals. This session takes a deeper look at exploring our own internal biases—recognized or unrecognized, and how this self-assessment can impact effectively working with others. The session also provides attendees the opportunity to bring forth the areas where they feel others may have bias toward them, with the approach of “I am more than my …”, as we build a culture that allows for transparency and vulnerability.
