This is a two-part interactive diversity and inclusion workshop about disrupting the impact of unconscious bias.
It does not matter what career you’re in or what type of business you do because everyone can get something out of this workshop. It is for those who want to learn more about biases that exist, many of which are unconscious. For those who want to educate themselves more about diversity and the biases in the human brain.
What Will You Learn?
Are you familiar with bias? Do you think you have bias?
Are you aware of the effects of bias on others, in the workplace, on yourself?
Do you understand the connection and importance of diversity and inclusion?
When you listen in on Lenora’s talk, these are a few of the questions and topics that will be talked about. Tune in and learn more about diversity and inclusion because you will not want to miss Lenora’s perspectives and observations. She will help the listeners go deeper into their understandings of these topics and open up the conversation about how our unconscious biases affect us and those around us. Lenora speaks about these important topics in an engaging and applicable manner that turns complex ideas into a meaningful discussion.
