Understanding Bias in the Workplace – October 8 HR Zoom Meeting

Posted on September 24, 2020 By

“It’s them, not me!” Many employees believe issues of bias are the result of other people, not themselves. The truth is, we ALL HAVE BIAS. The interest in understanding bias has grown over recent years both in the workplace and in matters of social injustice.

Jersey Shore Association for Human Resources (JSAHR) is hosting Understanding Bias in the Workplace, a free virtual meeting presented by attorney Andy Botwin, who owns Strategy People Culture and EEO Training, Wednesday, October 8, 2020, from 8:30 to 10:0 a.m.

The presentation, with a question and answer session, will cover the foundational groundwork discussion on bias; how bias impacts social situations, attitudes, cultures, and emotional reactions; and the impact of bias on co-workers, clients, job performance, and organizational success.

Members should register at jsahr.shrm.org/events; by emailing Christine Higgins at admin@JSAHR.org.; or call 732-701-7155. Log in details will be sent to registrants.
