Do you manage or work with an increasingly diverse population? Have you ever left a conversation with someone and wondered what you said wrong? Have you often avoided communicating with people from different cultures because you felt you have nothing in common? Learn how unconscious bias and cultural differences affect workplace dynamics, and learn how to maintain efficiency when people’s expectations, motivators and work styles cause conflict. This workshop will explore “culture” in a broad way considering the many cultures we function in daily (i.e. family, ethnic, political, religion, etc.). We will consider global as well as local culture and work to communicate more effectively keeping our biases in check.
•After participating in this workshop, participants will be able to define unconscious bias and begin to recognize how it plays out in daily interactions
•After participating in this workshop, participants will be made aware that a mixture of national, organizational, and individual cultural values and beliefs influence personal behaviors and attitudes
•After participating in this workshop, participants will be able to recognize how unconscious bias affects hiring, promotions and retention
