About this event

The BYU Management Society Phoenix, Denver, and San Diego Chapters are excited to co-host and invite you to this virtual event!

Unconscious bias is impacting your performance—whether you know it or not.

We’re good people with good intentions, making decisions based on facts . . . right?

Unfortunately, there’s more at play than we realize. Our brains are constantly filtering, sorting, and using shortcuts to handle the overwhelming amount of information we receive each day. And those shortcuts are often where unconscious bias slips in. Left unchecked, unconscious bias can impair our decision making and limit the performance, innovation, and opportunities of those we manage—sometimes in contrast to our most deeply held values.

Using the four-part framework outlined in this book—Identify Bias, Cultivate Connection, Choose Courage, and Apply Across the Talent Lifecycle—we can bring our biases to the surface and work to address them.

Bias is a natural part of the human condition—of how the brain works. And it affects how we make decisions, engage with others, and respond to various situations and circumstances, often limiting potential. 

There is nothing more fundamental to performance than how we see and treat each other as human beings.
