134 Leading Consciously: The Science of Unconscious (Implicit) Bias 

We all have biases that can affect our behaviors. These attitudes – unrecognized on the conscious level but powerful at the unconscious level – influence our choices, decisions and relationships. Cognitive scientists and researchers continue to learn more about the human brain, how it functions and how most of our actions intended or not, are powered at the subconscious level. With the current climate in local, state and federal entities, unconscious (implicit) bias has moved to the forefront of business as usual. This interactive workshop will 1) focus on how biases develop (naturally) and how those biases affect our decisions and actions in the workplace and beyond, 2) assist leaders, department heads, managers and associates understand the source of unconscious bias, 3) include structural and individual strategies that can be utilized when managing the impacts of biases in the workplace. This workshop is an opportunity to increase awareness of unconscious bias, address structural and individual biases and be accountable to others in the workplace and beyond.
