Are we making Business and Employment Decisions Based on our Inherent Biases?

Monday, June 25, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET

As our society becomes more diverse, businesses may not realize that their customers and employees also have become more diverse. More often than not, leadership ranks of these business remain less diverse, no longer mirroring their workforce or customer base. As people, we often view the world and people around us through our own experiences. If a company has a lack of diversity in a its workforce, then its employees’ experiences can lead to decisions based on unconscious biases adverse to diverse groups. Such decision have the potential to cause a loss of valuable employees and/or customers.

Diversity and inclusion is a business imperative. Employees who experience bias are less engaged and turnover at higher rates. Customers who experience bias at the hands of employees may not be return customers, and in today’s social media climate, such could lead to national exposure, a reduction in revenue and a deterioration of company brand.

It is well documented that a diverse workforce outperforms non-diverse teams. If your company is unconsciously closing the door on diverse groups, it is limiting its talent depth and skill pool. There are training tools that can be utilized to acknowledge and correct decisions that are being made by employees based upon unconscious bias and policies that can be implemented that brand your company and its goals to align with its market and foster its competitiveness.

You will learn:

  • Learn best practices on handling tricky situations arising from implicit biases;
  • Develop tools to avoid public relations and legal problems;
  • Assist with creating a more diverse, inclusive and welcoming/ equitable environment for employees and customers.

Break Your Own Rules: Changing the Thought Patterns that Block Women’s Paths to Power

Women have made tremendous strides in business over the past five decades, but their presence in the C-suite remains disappointingly small. Women hold less than 17 percent of top leadership positions in the Fortune 500. Yet organizations with greater gender parity, a recent study found, are more profitable and better poised for growth.

In this webinar, New York Times bestselling author and former C-suite executive Mary Davis Holt will offer a prescriptive plan to break the cycle that has held women back from the highest levels of leadership. She will share her proven method for how women can “get out of their own way” to secure high-ranking positions, while also providing clarity on what female executives bring to the table.

Through this webinar, you’ll:

  • Identify the “rules” you’ve made for yourself (and why you should break them!)
  • Change the thought patterns that could be limiting your career
  • Create an actionable game plan
