May 23—1-2 p.m.
Think you’re aware of your own biases? Think again, because most of us aren’t! And if you aren’t aware of them, how can you be sure you’re making good decisions?
Research shows that all of us have “unconscious biases”—our brains can make decisions about other people without us even knowing it. And if we are not aware of this fact, we can unintentionally make decisions based on stereotyping.
This not only has the potential for legal issues, it can keep your city from attracting and retaining qualified employees who are persons of color, disabled, women in nontraditional roles, and members of many other social groups.
Join us for this free webinar to learn why and how our brains make judgments about others, what the research tells us about how these biases can have unintended consequences at work, the ways these biases can impact employment decisions, and what you can do to avoid them.
Participate in this live webinar to:
Who should attend: Supervisors, city administrators, city clerks, human resources staff, elected officials—and anyone who makes hiring and other employment decisions!
You will be participating via the internet using GoToWebinar. An email confirmation with instructions to join the session will be sent after registration is completed.
