Unconscious Bias in Engineering: Why Is It Relevant to the Profession and What Can We Do About It?

Rivera-Jimenez, S., University of Florida

Research shows that diversity in groups can lead to increased innovation, better performance and stronger financial results. Yet, challenges to including diverse backgrounds, perspectives, or other differences persist in corporate and academic settings. Join us to understand what unconscious bias is and introduce you to key skills known to counter its negative impacts. The presentation will be followed by an interactive panel discussion with participation from industry and academia.
