Event Description:

Unconscious biases: we all have them. They are automatic and efficient mental shortcuts and associations. However, they can have a huge impact on talent management and leadership development within organizations.


In the business world, unconscious bias is now widely seen as a key barrier to creating a more diverse, inclusive and innovative workplace. Therefore, awareness of bias and how to interrupt it needs to be a high priority with companies and leaders who take inclusion and talent management seriously.
Join us and Ashley Mac Isaac-Butler, Director, Corporate Engagement & Government Affairs at Catalyst Canada, for an interactive roundtable discussion to hear about tools and strategies for individuals, leaders and organizations who want to reduce unconscious bias and build a more inclusive culture.
