In this webinar, we’ll examine four workplace issues frequently faced by senior women.

MEMBER EXCLUSIVE

It is said that seeing is believing; but what about the things we don’t realize we are seeing? Despite all our good intentions and our desire to be fair and merit-based in our assessments of others, our unconscious biases create blind spots. Decades of research by social scientists make it clear that our brains take short cuts to conclusions without telling us.

This is not because we are bad people, it’s because we are people.
