We have become comfortable accepting that workplace bias is unconscious and unintentional. So, what do we do now since it continues to be a barrier to our business results? Research shows that individual and organizational behavior shifts by:
a. focusing on the related dynamics that perpetuate the disparities that exist in hiring, promotion and overall interactions
b. measuring the behavior change we want to see
c. implementing accountability measures to sustain progress
This webinar is designed as an introduction to mitigating bias and understanding how long-term behavior change is effected within organizations.
