Event Details

Managing Unconscious Bias


True or False? Research shows that an interview’s ability to predict job performance is about zero.

Learn the answer to this question and many others as we recap the brain science behind natural human bias, and then explore bigger, bolder ideas for reducing its impact. Drawing from real LCW client case studies, this session will apply a cross-cultural competence lens to talent acquisition, targeting such tough issues as “culture fit” and what does/doesn’t work in managing biases.

Register to learn more and uncover your own unconscious bias as we:

  • Distill the latest brain science on unconscious bias, and the role it can have in decision-making. 
  • Apply a model for coaching interviewers and recruiters to separate a candidate’s style points from a candidate’s potential value to the organization. 
  • Explore lessons learned, for what works—and what can make things worse—when it comes to managing bias.
  • See where our own biases regarding ‘good cultural fit’ for our organization can lead us to miss the best talent for our organizations.
