It’s in our nature to have biases. Our brains use them to make sense of our fast paced world. Having biases isn’t the dangerous part; it’s how they affect our decisions and behaviors without our knowledge. The good news, is that there are things we can do to limit their impact and make sure our thoughts and behaviors align with our actual values.

In this workshop, we’ll explore different types of unconscious biases, examine what they look like, and discover where they might show up in your personal and professional lives.
