Zoom Webinar 

Grow Your Career Conference Webinar 

Our brains create shortcuts whether we like it or not. Acknowledging our own biases is the first step in understanding how others may be using unknowing shortcuts that could be impacting work relationships and career progression.    

This webinar will help you develop an understanding of unconscious bias and how it is present in the current workplace. Expect to advance in your self-understanding and bias-awareness and to develop an internal and external curious mindset. Learn about strategies to develop genuine connections with individuals of all backgrounds and identities to help you better navigate your own career development.    

Please note that this webinar is part of the 2024 Grow Your Career Conference, and you will have the option to register for this webinar separately from the in-person conference day.
