Mindful Life Webinar: Recognizing and Mitigating Unconscious Bias
September 23, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm
When change and quick responses are the norms in our work and personal lives, how do we know if biases are influencing our decision-making process and our interactions with others?
Unconscious bias occurs when our brain uses mental associations that are so well established, they operate without our awareness, intention, or control. It is no surprise that these biases penetrate nearly every aspect of our lives and can have a critical effect on how we make decisions and how we interact with colleagues, friends, and strangers.
In this webinar, we will identify the patterns of beliefs that support conscious and unconscious bias and the questions we can ask ourselves and others to mitigate bias. Recognizing and interpreting our personal biases is a crucial foundation of thoughtful, compassionate leadership, and is key for making effective change in the workplace and in our communities
