We all have unconscious biases, which doesn’t make us moral or corrupt; it makes us human. In this 2-hour virtual workshop, you will learn how the brain is naturally inclined to make generalizations (some true, some false, some good, some bad) and why. When these generalizations result in stereotypes and biases, there is a danger that marginalized employees will suffer unfair treatment and judgment through no fault of their own. While we cannot completely rid ourselves of unconscious bias, we can learn what to do when the bias is our own or when we are the target of someone else’s...

When George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis last year, Black Lives Matter (BLM) demonstrations erupted across the United States and Europe. From Berlin to Barcelona, demonstrators not only condemned police violence and systemic racism in the United States, but also in their own countries. Across Europe, these events rekindled long-brewing debates about colonial legacies, the nature of racism, and legislative changes to address past wrongs and protect citizens with minority backgrounds. Many politicians who advocate on these issues have faced hostile backlash and racist attacks.
This virtual workshop is one of three in a Managing in the COVID Era series. Managers may enroll in any one or the entire series. Managing Performance and Supporting Employees will explore key conversations managers can have with employees to ensure any changes to roles and goals are clarified, individual work connects to the team’s shared purpose, and individuals are supported in their new circumstances.
Offerings of this course are only viewable to Managers. If you believe you should be able to view and attend this course please email ...
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on communities of color in the United States.

With fewer than half of Black American adults indicating that they will definitely or probably get vaccinated against COVID-19, understanding the roots of this hesitancy—which dates back centuries—is...
As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, the aftereffects of isolation, stress, fear, and sadness are sure to linger. How can we fortify ourselves to grapple with the legacy of this unprecedented year? How can we offer relief to ourselves, our children, our colleagues, and our loved ones? Join us as we dig into the power of resilience — not as a magic cure-all, but instead as a way to build the tools we need to contend with difficulty, fear, or loss, and to take care of ourselves, and others, so that we can weather the storm.
We’ll hear from three experts who will explore the...
