Virtual Roundtable

Overview (Program Summary)

In August 2020, ACC NCR presented, “Implicit Bias + Debiasing” that explored the origins of our hidden biases and how those all too human reactions inform our lives, careers and institutions in ways that, though often well intentioned, are not always constructive or helpful.  Using real world examples, we examined everyday biases, microaggressions and other dynamics that impact perceptions of workplace fairness, employee engagement and, when unchallenged, may lead to diminished operational effectiveness or even legal/reputational risks. 

To expand upon that discussion, in this session we will explore specific, actionable and measurable tactics, routines and behaviors that we all can implement to actively “debias” ourselves, our teams, our workplaces and by extension, our profession. 

Join us for this important conversation on what we can do as individuals to identify and ultimately eliminate the biases that lead to error, inaccurate perceptions and unfairness in our professional environments.

Presented by John Lewis, Jr., Partner with Shook Hardy & Bacon, Naomi Mercer, Senior Vice President, Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at American Bankers Association and Jeniffer M. De Jesus Roberts,Vice President, Deputy General Counsel at Booz Allen Hamilton
