Are You Really an EEO Employer?
Rodney Klein is returning to MCHRA for a follow-up to his popular microaggressions presentation from last year. In this presentation, Rodney will dive deeper into understanding unconscious biases.
As much as we like to think of ourselves as logical, rational people, the truth is we are not always aware of what motivates many of the decisions we make. Unconscious bias based on impermissible things such as race, gender, age, religion, and disability can influence many of the employment decisions our managers and supervisors make. Learn how it works and discover strategies for combating unconscious bias and minimizing its influence in the workplace.
This is a timely topic that you don't want to miss!
