Unconscious Bias In the Workplace: Strategies to Avoid Unwittingly Marginalizing Employees

August 22, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

All human beings have biases (both positive and negative). They are mental “shortcuts” we use that may or may not reflect something true about the person(s) with whom we are interacting. We draw inferences from our own lives and experiences that we then unconsciously assume are true in all situations. These assumptions can lead to improper stereotyping and marginalization of individuals.

For example, one might assume that because someone is:

  • young, they must be fluent with technology; or
  • of Latin American descent, they must know how to speak Spanish.

Unconscious bias in the workplace not only harms the workplace culture & productivity, but can potentially create costly liability for the organization.

This seminar looks at the impact of unconscious bias in the workplace and provides solutions for managers to avoid unwittingly marginalizing employees.
