Unconscious Bias | September 8, 2020 | 12PM EST
Join Kelly Nolan of Talent Strategy for an hour of learning focused on the impacts of unconscious bias in the workplace. What does the data tell us about the impacts of unconscious bias? How well are we doing in effectively attracting and retaining diverse talent? Where are the growth opportunities and how does unconscious bias misinform our approaches? Winning the war on talent acquisition is not about a culture shift but a systems approach. This webinar will help managers and women understand how organizations must pivot to win the race for talent attraction and retention.
*This webinar was originally part of our spring webinar series, "Webinars for the Times We Work In". If you registered for this event in the spring, you do not need to register again. This webinar is being offered for free to honour its original cost.*
