Join us for our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workplace Series presented by Travelers Insurance, "50 Ways to Fight Bias: Battling the Unconscious Biases Women Face at Work".  Almost three in four women experience bias at work, and those who do are more likely to leave their jobs. And women of color, LGBTQ+ women, and women with disabilities face more acute biases. Yet only one in three employees, including managers, challenges biased behavior when they see it.

Knowing that unconscious & gender biases exist isn’t enough. We need to take action—and Lean In’s 50 Ways to Fight Bias training program can help.” -LeanIn.org

50 Ways to Fight Bias invites participants to walk through scenarios meant to help them identify types of bias, and more importantly, what to do when they encounter them. Using a discussion based model, it invites the group to share their own experiences and thoughts on bias, while being provided with important statistics and examples. This program is meant for all levels, gender identities, and backgrounds.
