Presented by Lenora Billings-Harris

The most successful leaders accelerate results by leveraging diversity of thought.

Diversity, inclusion and bias have been misunderstood for years. Due to the recent neuroscience of bias research, we now know that everyone has bias, and our daily decisions are impacted by them without our awareness. The good news is once we become aware of the impact of our biases, we can choose to mitigate those that produce negative outcomes.

Internationally recognized author and speaker, Lenora will help you examine and reframe your approach to diversity, inclusion, and bias. Using a no blame no shame approach, you will explore what bias is, why it is necessary in our lives, and how unconscious bias impacts productivity, talent management, innovation and bottom-line business results. Lenora will reveal the interdependence of these concepts and the missing components needed to create an environment of high performance. Using an evidence-based approach, Lenora will provide practical yet cutting edge insights that can be immediately applied.
