Did you know your brain can process 400 billion bits of information per second? Pretty impressive, right? Our brain’s super-computing powers are essential to making quick decisions for everyday life and general survival, and a majority of that processing happens without us even being aware of it. Welcome to the world of unconscious bias!

In this highly engaging workshop, participants are challenged to confront their own unconscious biases (don’t worry, we all have them) and get an understanding of how those biases impact how they think, communicate, and act in the workplace. They participate in a series of “Bias Busters” that use multimedia content and experiential exercises to uncover their biases and learn how their brains works. Participants have countless “aha” moments, and they discover how bias impacts all kinds of decisions ranging from who gets hired and promoted to who gets asked to take notes at the team meeting. The program culminates with easy-to-use strategies to mitigate bias and build a positive and inclusive workplace culture.

Participants leave this program with the ability to:

  • Identify three specific kinds of unconscious bias and how it manifests at work

  • Understand how unconscious bias impacts decision-making and relationship-building

  • Design decision-making processes that mitigate the impact of unconscious bias

  • Build diverse teams and relationships that reach across lines of difference

Bias busters, unconscious bias hacks, and hands-on activities make this an unforgettable and powerful program that drives ROI for the organization.
