About the presentation

Title:  “Unconscious Bias: How to Beat the Bias That Gets in Your Way”

This involving program is designed to provide immediately-applicable skills for defeating the biases that interfere with both personal and professional success. Based on the conviction that biases don’t make us bad people – it’s what we do about them that matters – the presentation begins by laying the groundwork of what unconscious bias is (and what it isn’t) and then provides practical guidance on what to do about it.

Each attendee will get a free PDF copy of Dr. Thiederman's handbook “3 Keys to Defeating Unconscious Bias: Watch, Think, Act”
