Live Webinar: Tuesday, February 27, 2018

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to create a culture of inclusion to avoid the damage hidden biases can cause to the workplace culture.


 

Most workplaces now have anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policies in place. But hidden bias can nonetheless creep in and damage workplace culture, productivity, and even retention.

What is hidden bias? It is subtle but can reveal itself in different ways, such as: 

  • An interviewer asks different questions of different candidates, depending on their race, age, and gender.   
  • An executive invites a male worker to attend a sporting event while ignoring a female worker who’s sitting right there. 
  • A manager assumes that a young dad won’t be interested in a promotion because he’s too busy with his kids 


These may all seem like little things, but they can add up to create a pervasive (and possibly illegal) culture of bias.

But if hidden bias is, by definition, hidden, how can HR recognize and correct it? Learn how by joining us for an in-depth webinar on February 27.

You’ll learn how to: 

  • Identify and address unconscious bias in individuals and in your organizational culture, with an emphasis on business systems and processes 
  • Create a culture of belonging by taking small actions that result in big change 
  • Outline the ways in which an inclusive atmosphere will benefit the organization 
  • Increase awareness of unconscious bias in the recruiting, hiring, and retention process, and learn solutions 
  • Conduct an HR self-audit to uncover hidden biases within the department 
  • Solve problems stemming from individual, organizational, and systemic biases that affect diversity, inclusion, and employees’ sense of belonging 
  • And much more!
