Actions Speak Louder Than Words: Evidence-Based Strategies to Eliminate Bias 

May 15, 2024 9:00a - 10:00a PT

If an organization is struggling with DEIB, it’s likely because subtle (and not-so-subtle) forms of bias are being transmitted through business systems like hiring, performance evaluations, and access to opportunities. 

This webinar will explore how a suite of companies implemented evidence-based Bias Interrupters into their business systems and saw major improvements in a short time period. We’ll focus on strategies that orgs of all sizes can use to track metrics, teach employees what less obvious forms of bias look like, and control bias in business systems.

Suggested Audience: This webinar benefits those who are involved in organizational policies and practices around hiring/recruiting, performance evaluations, or access to opportunities, and those who have some voice in DEIB-related policy. It also speaks to anyone looking for actionable, concrete steps they can begin using to interrupt bias at their organization today.
