WEMBA Awareness and Understanding Implicit Bias Workshop
In this Awareness and Understanding Implicit Bias workshop, the facilitator will describe the causes and consequences of implicit bias and its impact on society and the workplace. It’s a provocative and highly interactive presentation. We will also discuss the potential impact of implicit bias on four phases of the employee life cycle—hiring, talent development, promotion, and exit. Practical strategies will be offered for identifying, managing, and mitigating implicit bias at the personal and organizational levels.
Broadly speaking, group-based bias involves varying degrees of stereotyping (exaggerated beliefs about others), prejudice (dis/liking others), and/or discrimination (unequal treatment of others) that occur above or below conscious awareness. Scholars have labeled the subconscious form of group-based bias implicit bias.
