    Join us with Tyrone A. Holmes, Ed.D., President of T.A.H. Performance Consultants, LLC for a virtual discussion!

    Unconscious bias is a quiet, yet powerful performance killer because it interferes with our ability to build  relationships across differences and leads to bad decisions that impair individual and organizational  performance. Left unchecked, unconscious bias can negatively impact the recruitment, interviewing and  selection process. This highly interactive, virtual workshop will describe 3 types of unconscious bias that  can impact the hiring process (affinity bias, beauty bias and confirmation bias) and describe specific steps  we can take to reduce the negative impact of these biases.

    As a result of this session, each participant will be able to do the following: 

    1. Define unconscious bias. 

    2. Describe 3 types of unconscious bias that can negatively affect the hiring process: affinity bias, beauty  bias and confirmation bias. 

    3. Describe specific steps we can take to reduce the negative impact of unconscious bias on the hiring  process.
