Recognizing and reducing the impacts of Implicit Bias is an integral part of an organization’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives. Implicit (or Unconscious) Bias, are attitudes or assumptions that affect our interpretations of information, actions and interactions with others, and decision-making in an unconscious manner. Bias can be based on a protected class status such as race, gender, LGBTQ+ status, religion, or ethnicity, and on non-protected status such as generational affiliation, education, values and role in the organization. Regardless, these concepts are expanding the scope of complaints and claims in the workplace, including micro-aggressions, and inequities, promotional, pay and leadership inequities. This practical training provides a toolkit for recognizing and responding to bias, examines current trends of implicit bias, including unhealthy workplace cultures, unprofessional behavior and bullying, with a focus on how social media is completely changing the entire complaint, investigation and resolution process. Camille’s presentation focuses on helping managers and co-workers understand how Implicit Bias impacts them and how to reduce these impacts in a “No Shame, No Blame” manner.
