Examining Unconscious Bias

See the World in a New Light

Everyone has biases. When we know about these tendencies, we can be more self-aware and sensitive to people around us. Collective conscious awareness can lead to more inclusive and equitable workplaces, higher productivity and more meaningful dialogue and experiences. If you’re ready to facilitate change in your company (and in your community), the ICAN team has the tools and strategies for you at our Examining Unconscious Bias program.

The individuals we coach are paired with one of our faculty members who advises them on their career, leadership development and more.
