Examining Unconscious Bias
ICAN’s newest program cultivates leaders who are advocate, become aware to their biases + blindspots, facilitate change and consciously practice inclusive leadership. The next series of this 4-session open enrollment program will begin November 9. To learn how this program can also be brought internally to your organization as a custom program, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Examining Unconscious Bias
Let’s face it, everyone has a level of unconscious bias. This ICAN program helps leaders explore those mental blind spots and inflexible beliefs that keep them from seeing others accurately, from making fair decisions, from fostering equity, and from building the kind of relationships that make leadership and our organizations more successful.
While biases are bad news for workplaces, they don’t make us bad people. Tendencies are ingrained and make individuals vulnerable to unconscious beliefs. But, we can work to spot our unconscious biases to make them conscious and in turn change our behaviors to act in ways that counter our biases and help foster common ground. While one will not fully change their unconscious bias in just 4 sessions, this program will develop a leader to be more aware and able to see through a different lens.
This intensive and immersive program cultivates leaders who are advocates, facilitate change and consciously practice inclusive leadership. Participants will develop their capability and commitment to being part of a high performing, inclusive and diverse team. Registration deadline is February 2.
The program can also be brought internally as an ICAN Custom Program and customized to incorporate and honor your company’s unique values, organizational goals, guiding philosophies and current diversity and inclusion strategies. Contact us to learn more.
