Unconscious bias is a key cause of gender inequality in organizations today, yet de-biasing people’s minds is virtually impossible. How, then, can we create a level playing field in the workplace? In this session, we’ll discover the latest insights from gender and behavioral research and learn how they can be used to close gender gaps through improved talent management and more inclusive culture.
Learning Objectives:

  • Develop an understanding of unconscious bias and its manifestations in organizations and workplaces
  • Discover practical interventions to mitigate the effects of unconscious bias
