ONLINE MEETING: Unconscious Bias in Workplace Investigations
This meeting is being hosted by the Workplace Investigations Section.

Speaker(s): Alden E. Habacon, Diversity and Inclusion Strategist and Facilitator
Time: Tuesday, May 5, 2020 at 12:30pm - 2:00pm (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.50 hours

Join us for an engaging and informative discussion led by Mr. Habicon respecting how cognitive or unconscious bias — the implicit attitudes or stereotypes that shape how we engage others, form opinions and make decisions — can impact and undermine a workplace investigation. Most Importantly Mr. Habacon will provide workplace investigators with tools and strategies for disrupting or reducing cognitive bias in order that a fair and effective workplace investigation remains the focus.
