UNBIAS: Addressing Unconscious Bias At Work
UNBIAS: Addressing Unconscious Bias At Work A step-by-step guide on creating workplace cultures where employees feel they belong. Dismantling unhealthy workplaces involves much more than talking about it, and more than charts, graphs, and statistics—it requires action. Although it’s increasingly common for businesses of all shapes and sizes to appreciate the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, many are often unaware of bias in the cultures they’ve created. Others might know there’s a problem, but don’t know how to properly address it.
Stacey will help you understand concepts of workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion, show how to identify bias, and provides the tools for actively removing barriers and ensuring equity throughout an organization.

She has coached people managers and executive leaders from companies such as American Express, ADP, Kia Motors, HP, Walmart, and many others on improving DEI strategies.
