Overcoming Unconscious Bias in the Workplace, featuring Kim Graham Lee

“We all have unconscious bias; it doesn’t make us bad, it makes us human.”

We all develop and carry some level of bias that stems from mental shortcuts but ends up affecting the way we see the world around us. Inside the workplace unconscious bias influences our hiring and promotion practices, colors employee experiences, and impacts overall business performance. Instead of shying away from our biases, we must face them head-on, looking introspectively to recognize where they come from so that we can overcome these barriers to progress in business.
