Don't Miss the Unconscious Bias Workshop
This 2.5-hour session will provide Minority Business Enterprises with a clear understanding of the consequences of how unmanaged unconscious biases can have a direct impact on business opportunities. The facilitator will provide a working definition of unconscious bias. We will further demonstrate that unconscious bias is not limited to white people, but affects everyone negatively. We will provide practical business examples of what it is and how to recognize these biases and outline a course of action on affirmative responses. Participants will gain an understanding of their self-awareness and cultural perspectives as well as other cultures.
10 a.m. to noon, Oct. 6 at the National Liberty Museum.
