Unconscious bias is a quiet, yet powerful performance killer because it interferes with our ability to build relationships across differences and leads to bad decisions that impair individual and organizational performance. One way it negatively affects performance is through its impact on institutional inclusion. Inclusive environments maximize the likelihood of success for a diverse range of people.

Unfortunately, unconscious bias can greatly inhibit this success. This session describes unconscious bias, identifies the specific ways it can diminish inclusion and proffers steps we can take to reduce bias and its negative impact.

Specifically, as a result of this highly interactive virtual workshop, you will be able to do the following:

  • Define unconscious bias and describe the different types of bias that can negatively impact organizational inclusion.
  • Identify the specific, subtle ways unconscious bias can promote exclusion (including the recruitment, selection, staff development, leadership development and evaluation processes).
  • Identify specific steps you can take to reduce your unconscious bias and diminish the negative impact it has on organizational inclusion.

Dr. Tyrone Holmes is a professional speaker, consultant and coach who has spent more than two decades teaching thousands of people to build powerful relationships in diverse settings. He has facilitated over 1,500 live and virtual presentations that have taught participants to reduce the “noise” in their lives, to effectively communicate their messages, to connect with diverse audiences and groups, and to reduce the negative impact of unconscious bias. Dr. Holmes served as a full-time faculty member at Eastern Michigan University in the Department of Leadership and Counseling, and at Wayne State University in the Department of Theoretical and Behavioral Foundations. He is also a Past President of the Arizona Chapter of the National Speakers Association. Most recently, Dr. Holmes was awarded the designation of eSpeakers Certified Virtual Presenter.
