Implicit Bias Mitigation Workshop
This interactive online workshop for leaders will discuss how organizations can address implicit bias using a three-step model: assessment, awareness, and taking action. Rev. Dr. Bryant T. Marks, Sr., will build on the content presented in The Hidden Biases of Good People.
Implicit Bias Mitigation will cover:
- Homework assignments from The Hidden Biases of Good People
- Review and discussion of implicit bias in the employee life cycle: hiring, talent development, promotion, and exit
- Three-step model for addressing implicit bias in organizations: assessment, awareness, taking action
- The three components of a bias management action plan: transparency, objective standards, and accountability
- The potential impact of implicit bias on performance evaluations, team dynamics, and decision making in the workplace
- Small working group discussions regarding potential implementation of several practices/policies that are expected to reduce bias at the personal and organizational levels. This dialogue will include:
- Identifying recommendations that are already being implemented as well as the challenges, lessons learned, and impact of each implemented recommendation
- Selecting 2-3 new recommendations that can be implemented in the short-term
- Identifying challenges and solutions to implementing the new 2-3 recommendations
- Creating a list of concrete next steps toward implementation of recommendations
- An overview of follow-up activities and materials that will reinforce workshop information and increase the likelihood of long-term impact
