Event Details

Led by: Melinda Messineo

We used to think there were “biased people” and “unbiased people” and that “good” people were not biased. Over time, cognitive science has helped us understand that we are ALL biased and the difference is not between “good’ and “bad” but in how aware we are of our potential biases and how skilled we are at the strategies we can mobilize to reduce the impact of those biases. This workshop will provide participants with an understanding of unconscious bias and its origins and its connection to micro-aggressions along with tools and proactive everyday strategies for positive outcomes.


Eastern Indiana Works provides these sessions, in partnership with Shafer Leadership Academy, as a free service to our clients from Feb. – Aug. 2021.

Career and leadership workshops are designed to enhance your marketability and improve your skill-set. All sessions require active engagement and provide action-oriented steps for the participant. Career Workshops will focus on three phases of the career development process: EXPLORE, PREPARE, CONNECT.

Please register within 24 hours of workshop time.
