Chapter # 0011

Welcome to SHRM Jacksonville!



 February 2017 Chapter Meeting


The Illusion of Objectivity

Program Description

 Speaker Information

Everyone has biases! Deeply held beliefs and perceptions are NOT always obvious or conscious to us. Unconscious biases will undermine the best intention to create an inclusive work environment. This program is designed to increase personal awareness of implicit biases and explore strategies for understanding how to strengthen inclusion by focusing on positive biases and challenging negative preconceptions...both known and unknown.                   

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants understand why bias makes objectivity fragile
  • Participants will explore ways to check personal biases in order to be more objective in interactions
