Beyond unconscious bias training: What works?

Wednesday, September 22, 2021,
9:00pm to 10:00pm
EDT
Virtual / Online





By now we’ve all heard that unconscious bias is part of being human. Although we may believe we’re being objective, we all have unconscious biases.

At this meeting, we'll be breaking down the behavioural science behind unconscious bias - and exploring its effect on recruitment.  We’ll find out if unconscious bias training works, and if not, what strategies we can use to remove unconscious bias from our processes.  

Expect research-based insights, plenty of fascinating studies and some practical next steps for building a fairer, more inclusive hiring process.
