Understanding and Eliminating Bias: Bias, both conscious and unconscious, have resulted in disparate outcomes for women and people of color. Growing demands for corporate Economic Social and Governance (ESG) accountability have pushed businesses to look for ways to understand and mitigate bias-related challenges.  In addition, recent court cases regarding diversity programs in higher education have created uncertainty around affirmative diversity programs undertaken by businesses.

In this session, in-house counsel will learn:
•    The nature of bias and how it impacts decision-making
•    Common biases that impact businesses
•    Tips and strategies to mitigate the effects of bias
•    Recent court decisions regarding affirmative action programs in higher education and the potential impact on corporate diversity programs

Presenters:

Deborah Bayles, Partner, Stinson
Jennifer Bielak, Senior Manager, Global Diversity & Inclusion, Lockheed Martin Space
Ann Thomas, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Stinson
Hailey Perkins, Associate, Stinson
