    Topic:  Implicit Bias

    Speaker: Jonathan A. Segal

    We all know that it is unlawful—and bad business—to consider an applicant’s or employee’s gender, race, color, religion, etc. in making a hiring or promotion decision.  But sometimes we do implicitly—that is, without conscious awareness.  And, this may raise legal issues and it most certainly raises business/HR issues. 

    This program focuses on types of implicit bias that may infect hiring and promotional processes.  Tests to uncover implicit bias also are explored as well as the sometimes unconsidered risks of those tests. 

    The program includes a discussion of training options to help bring unconscious bias to conscious awareness without creating discoverable data that can be used against the organization.  Because promotions are often tied to evaluations, particular attention will be paid to implicit bias in appraisals. 

    Finally, the program concludes with systemic safeguards to mitigate the potential for unconscious bias to rear its ugly, from screening to decision making.
