Implicit Bias for Managers and Recruiters
Managers, recruiters, and supervisors will explore how implicit bias is embedded in the decision-making process. This variation of our Implicit Bias workshop explores the impact of implicit bias on hiring, evaluation, and other managerial practices. Participants will identify actionable strategies for building inclusivity and advancing equity within their organizations.
Introduction: Workshop Objectives
Facilitators will lay the foundation for the workshop, introduce dialogue practices, and have participants get to know one another.
Section I: Understanding Bias, the Unconscious Mind, and How We Form Perceptions
Facilitators will lead interactive group activities that encourage participants to explore how the brain processes information. Participants will learn how unconscious perceptions are formed and how to identify bias.
Section II: Personal Identity and Group Experience
Participants will explore both personal and social identities focusing on their relationships to power and privilege and how these impact the way we perceive information.
Section III: 5 R’s Framework for Interrupting Bias
Participants will explore and practice applying our unique 5 R’s approach to disrupting implicit bias. Activities will be tailored based on group roles.
Section IV: Building Strategies
Using workshop learnings and frameworks, participants will begin mapping out ways to mitigate bias and advance more equitable practices within their organization.
