Lorne shares the results from his Global Bias Impact Survey. In 2022 and 2023, we asked hundreds of professionals from around the globe to share their insights on the impact of Unconscious Bias in the workplace and what they are doing to mitigate it. This talk presents a summary of what the data revealed. Lorne is committed to improving our ability to relate to one another, learn how to learn, and slow down our thinking to uncover and mitigate our unconscious biases. 

For centuries marginalized people have been crying out for justice, freedom, and an opportunity to be heard. Those who do not feel heard have turned up the volume most recently experienced after the murder of George Floyd.

My report honors marginalized people, including people of color, the LGBTQ community, non-native-born Americans, women, the elderly, and everyone who wants to be seen and accepted for who they are.

Discrimination and dysfunction in the workplace stem from a lack of diversity, inclusion, and equity (DEI). Unconscious Bias is one of the biggest influences on this set of problems. Improving the choices we make will improve DEI and business outcomes.

I want to share with the public what people see as the impact of unconscious bias in their workplace and what they are doing to mitigate it to make our work world a better place.

Questions Addressed:

  • How aware are professionals that bias exists?
  • What are areas of work most impacted by biases?
  • What are their plans to mitigate it?
  • What are their success stories in reducing the impact bias has in their workplace?

Being more aware and removing obstacles to awareness are critical levers in mitigating bias in the workplace. There is an attainable response that can generate the desired solution.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
