Recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia and elsewhere, and the national debate they have engendered about the ways our collective past is represented in our culture and public spaces, create both a unique opportunity and compelling responsibility for leading organizations in our country. We believe now is the time to come together to carry the national narrative beyond Confederate heritage, make a bold commitment to celebrating the many overlooked contributions of the African American community, and make an important and lasting contribution to the cultural landscape of our country.
Building off the Council’s HR Summit, this webinar will address the topic of bias and its impact on the performance management process. Removing subjectivity from performance management is near impossible given the universality of unconscious bias. This raises the question, are there even ways to minimize bias within your own performance management process? Allyson Dylan Robinson, Senior Consultant at Cook Ross, will share information on the types of bias associated with performance management and tips for mitigating these. Please note that attendance at the 2017 HR Summit is not a prerequisite for participating in this webinar.
