It’s a fact: Human beings have unconscious bias, and this bias affects all aspects of our lives, including the workplace. Exploring and taking action to undo bias is critical to creating environments where all talent can feel they truly belong. In year one of this series, we explored the places that bias exists in our agencies and offered expert advice to eliminate it. This year, we’re acknowledging the personal responsibility every member of the agency team has to eliminate bias and activate belonging.
Join us for one or all of the webinars to learn and embrace your role in helping your agency become a best place to work for diverse talent.
