To combat unconscious gender and racial biases in the workplace, business owners must take deliberate action against them, or it could cause tremendous profit losses. On today’s show, we’re pleased to welcome Dr. Shirley Davis, President, and CEO of SDS Global Enterprises, certified leadership coach, and Diversity and Inclusion global thought leader.
Unconscious bias is something that we all have first and foremost. It is an unconscious opinion, either positive or negative, that we all have about a person or thing. It comes from the attitudes and stereotypes that we learn at a very young age and it affects everything from decision making, to social behavior, and our understanding of other people.
In this segment, Dr. Davis discusses the research behind unconscious bias in professional settings, the harm it can cause to your business, and strategies to actively prevent this kind of prejudice. To find out more, be sure to watch our entire interview above.
