2016 Session | Unconscious Bias: Strategies for Bridging the Gap

The stats are staggering and while we have taken steps in the right direction, progress remains slow. Impacting real change will require a top down and bottom up approach. The most effective leaders navigate highly diverse teams, being aware of any unconscious bias – all with an eye toward innovation and profitability. Using real-world examples from workplaces that are making strides, this interactive discussion will explore what leaders at all levels can do to contribute to the overall movement including: • How to deal with unconscious bias in yourself and team members; • How to measure, motivate and reward the best teams; • What types of metrics optimize innovation; and • What actionable steps you can take to immediately impact positive change for your team and organization.
