About this session
Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable can be difficult in a personal or professional environment when it comes to acknowledging and addressing bias. In this OpenRICE session, we will examine the concept of perception as it can help us to identify when and how bias is present in our decision-making and how to proactively take steps to address and potentially defeat bias as we move forward. Participants will leave the session with action items to use as an individual and ways to face bias in a work or personal environment when they observe or feel it has been engaged in a situation.
