About the Event
We all make quick assessments of others without even realizing it. We are not born with bias. Biases are formed by past situations, experiences, background and culture. Unconscious biases typically exist towards gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability (both physical and mental), and weight. Most of us will say “I see people for who they are” but do we? Recognizing, managing and mitigating unconscious bias promotes diversity and inclusion. Diversity and inclusion drives innovation, increases productivity, and stimulates creativity while promoting a healthy, happy, engaging culture. Diversity is who's on the team; Inclusion is who gets to play.
This is a virtual interactive, highly engaging, relevant and often humorous keynote with speaker Tina Varughese, where attendees will participate in live polling, group chats, slide shares, practical activities and Q and A to promote social inclusivity, engagement and unity.
