Chapter # 0011

Welcome to SHRM Jacksonville!

October 2016 Chapter Meeting & Networking Social


The Illusion of Objectivity

Program Topic:   Employee Relations, Relationship Management, Organizational Effectiveness & Development

Program Description:

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

Certification Information:

This activity has been submitted for one (1) Professional Development Credit (PDC) by SHRM and one (1) HR (General) credit with the HR Certification Institute.
