Overcoming Bias in School & Beyond | 2018 Session

We all have blind spots or biases about people from other cultures, religions, and genders. These hidden biases influence the friends we choose, the organizations we join—and can influence our careers. Recognizing and braving our own blind-spots is challenging enough, but how do we ensure others are assessing us in a fair and accurate way? Whether negative or positive, these stereotypes influence others’ behavior towards us.  Join this panel of leaders to learn how they overcame broad generalizations about who they were to accomplish their lofty goals.
