Workshops | DEI Unconscious Bias

DEI Unconscious Bias

Learn about Unconscious bias and what to do about it. Create an inclusive environment to be productive in your business.


Understanding Unconscious Bias

The unaware internalization of socialization messages, about other groups of people (unique to one’s culture and life experiences), are collected in our unconscious brain as preferences or bias. For some, this field of influence remains largely un-distinguished; we are simply unaware of what we don’t know.  In DEI – Unconscious Bias we explore:

  • Understanding our brain and how we process information.
  • Personal lenses, layers and legacies and their impact on preferences and behavior.
  • Interrupting our unconscious bias to align behaviors that strengthen inclusive experiences.

"Most of us have the willingness to work effectively across different cultures. What we lack sometimes, is the ability to work effectively with other people of any culture, personality or profession. "


Unintentional exclusion can be very subtle and difficult to spot and address. In this DEI check-in, we cover the research behind micro inequities and aggressions, why they matter and their impact on engagement and performance. What we explore:

What are micro-inequities and micro-aggressions?

Rethinking and ranking behaviors that potentially limit productivity and engagement with others.

Addressing micro-inequities/aggressions in ways that does not damage relationships.
