Event Description

Jim Barnes, Assistant Village Manager, Village of Wellington
We live and work in a world that is full of unique and diverse individuals. From the obvious differences, like gender and language, to more subtle differences, like upbringing and culture, we are surrounded by inputs that create unconscious responses deep in our psyche. How we react to those responses determines how well we leverage the diversity around us. In this session we will uncover what unconscious bias really is, the science behind it and how to respond to those biases in a way that benefits our organizations and our communities.
Learning Objectives

  • Learn the definition of unconscious bias and the factors that create those biases.
  • Discover the science behind unconscious bias and how it influences decisions in their daily lives.
  • Learn how to identify their own unconscious biases and what they can do to respond to those biases in a way that promotes collaboration, support and positive culture in their organizations.
