I wanted to take a moment to highlight the key features of our webinars and the speaker delivering this session.
Topic: What We Don’t Know May Hurt Us: Recognizing And Addressing Unconscious Bias In The Workplace
Date & Time: 15th June, 2018 at 03:30 PM ET
Duration: 90 min
Implicit, or unconscious bias, exists in the workplace and classrooms. What does it look like? How can an employer create an unbiased work environment? How can management get in touch with their own unconscious biases to combat unintentional bias with colleagues and clients? Research suggests that unconscious bias regarding race and gender impacts relationships with those we interact with. We all experience some degree of unconscious bias-yes, even those of us that are well-intentioned. Unconscious bias includes the subtle associations we make towards groups of people. Stereotypes, which often operate unconsciously, are often the root of our bias. The phenomenon has been used to partially explain the racial tension in the U. S. and particularly with the police shootings of Black men. The U. S. Department of Justice (DOJ) recognizes the important role unconscious bias plays in the life of attorneys and law enforcement. As a result, beginning this year, the DOJ will be rolling out training to more than 23,000 agents in the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies as well as 5,800 attorneys in 94 U. S. Attorney’s Offices around the country. State and local police and sheriff departments are also conducting unconscious bias training.
