10am – Noon Implicit Bias with Kira Kimball of Marsh McLennan Agency (2 Required)

Unconscious bias operates in our brain at a very subtle level, below our awareness. Defined as ingrained habits of thought, remaining unchecked, unconscious bias can impact our behavior, perceptions, reasoning, decision making, and how we interact with and treat others. It can limit our opportunities as individuals and as businesses. Moreover, our unconscious bias can create false assumptions in our thinking about individuals we are trying to serve, work with or support.

This workshop will introduce participants to unconscious bias and help them to explore and identify their own unconscious biases and cognitive shortcuts. We all have them. There is no “right” or “wrong.” Unconscious bias is inherently human, but unconscious bias can also act as a barrier to our efforts when these shortcuts lead us to incorrect conclusions. If we can raise our self-awareness of our unconscious bias, then we can slow down or interrupt the bias to replace with different, more informed thinking.

 Noon – 1pm  One on One with Sioux Falls Mayor Paul TenHaken
