Best Practices in DEI: Identifying and Mitigating Unconscious Bias
July 19, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
This module is the third of seven in an ongoing Best Practices in DEI Series.
Over the last couple of years, we’ve all be made aware (or powerfully reminded) of the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within our organizations and our communities. The imperative is clear: inclusion and racial equity optimizes organizational performance and societal outcomes — not only for people of color, but for everyone. But wanting to be more inclusive and actually being more inclusive are usually two very distinct conditions. The latter takes work: policy and system changes, education and discernment, intentionality and constant effort.
Wisconsin Center for Performance Excellence in partnership with the Performance Excellence Network — is pleased to host a special online workshop series: “Best Practices in DEI.” The series will be seven stand-alone half-day modules and can either be attended “ala carte” or as a complete series. The content is uniquely aligned with the Baldrige Performance Excellence Framework, exploring many facets of diversity, equity, and inclusion through the lens of this proven Framework (though your organization does not have to be officially using Baldrige to benefit from the value of this series!). The third module is Tuesday, July 19: “Identifying & Mitigating Unconscious Bias.”
Session 3 is July 19 from 9:00-1:00 CT and will focus on us as individuals and leaders — understanding and managing the unconscious biases we all have — adjusting our prejudices and becoming better allies and leaders.
