“Inclusive Leadership: Creating a More Inclusive Workplace by Mitigating our Unconscious Biases” is a highly interactive and tactical workshop designed to teach GCHRA participants how to create more inclusive workplaces.  
Unlike conventional approaches that focus primarily on bias awareness, this program largely focuses on actionable solutions to actively mitigate the impact of unconscious bias in the workplace—actions that result in measurable organizational and behavior change.
This highly interactive workshop uses examples from scientific research, business practice and the humanities to help HR leaders improve the inclusivity of their workplaces.  The workshop is designed to help all participants develop a "Post workshop action plan";  all participants spend time identifying talent management management processes that need to change and drafting first steps to take after the workshop.

Learning Objectives:
- Understand the root causes and impact of unconscious bias; understand the most common unconscious biases that impact the workplace
- How to redesign talent management processes and management activities to limit the impact of bias, especially recruiting, performance management, promotion as well as day-to-day coaching and team meetings
- Steps that individuals can take to start to change their unconscious biases over the long-term
