A Workplace Where We All Belong: Avoiding Implicit Bias & Diversifying Our Teams

With Melissa Meiris

The culture and demographics of our state, our county, and our communities are changing. We want our workplaces to reflect and value diversity, and we sense that our companies and organizations will be strengthened if we hire people who bring different experiences and perspectives. We are committed, but we don't always know where to begin.

Designed for business and organization leaders, human resources professionals, and anyone involved in hiring processes, this two-part course will shed new light on implicit bias and its impacts on all types of hiring situations and professions. Together, we will develop specific strategies for changing implicit patterns of behavior in ourselves and our organizations, with positive potential impacts on the diversity of our workforce, client satisfaction, and our ability to reach a broader audience – crucial and concrete first steps in creating workplaces where we all belong.
