How to Recognize and Minimize Unconscious Bias in the Workplace
The modern workplace should be an inclusive and welcoming environment for all employees but that isn’t always the case. In fact, systemic inequality is the norm for a vast number of workplaces throughout North America, Europe and beyond. And while the BLM and MeToo movements have received much media attention, the underlying factors that contribute to the inequality they point out aren’t always addressed.
Implicit, or unconscious, bias is the root of many systemic inequities in the workplace. It’s important that we recognize our personal biases, take action to mitigate them and actively serve as an ally to others.
Join Catherine Mattice, president of Civility Partners, a training and consulting firm focused on helping organizations build positive workplace cultures, as she outlines strategies for uncovering and reducing implicit bias in workplace decision-making.
