Reducing Implicit Bias in Your Talent Life Cycle
In-Person and Virtual Friday 09/10/2021 07:30 AM - 08:30 AM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), Workplace (Technical)
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn how to develop systems to reduce the impact of implicit bias throughout the talent life cycle of every employee.  

Recognizing unconscious bias and reducing its impact will improve all phases of talent management—from recruiting candidates to assessing and promoting leaders. Research shows that bias impedes merit-based talent systems. As Harvard Business School professor Francesca Gino says, “Biases cause us to make decisions in favor of one person or group to the detriment of others ... which leads some of the best people managers to not recognize some of the talents, skills and abilities of diverse employees.” This interactive session will deliver proven solutions to transform the effectiveness of talent management/development systems. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Define where in your talent life cycle implicit bias may have its greatest impact. 
  • Learn how to use a practical tool to reduce the impact of unconscious bias in the performance appraisal process. 
  • Learn how to use DE&I awareness, empathy and strategy models to develop breakthrough solutions to talent life cycle management challenges.
