Understanding and Reducing Unconscious Bias


Everyone has unconscious biases, at least partially influenced by factors from our background and personal experiences or societal stereotypes. Not understanding unconscious bias can hurt relationships with your peers and team members at work, and in the community you serve. It is important to be aware of and address your own biases by becoming conscious of them so you can reduce them.

To enhance your self-awareness and your learning experience during the session, you are encouraged to take the online assessment before attending, that will be provided to you upon registration. The results are anonymous and will be sent directly to you only. Unless you choose to share them, they will not be seen by any Shafer Leadership Academy Staff, or the session facilitator.
