    In this heavily participatory workshop, we will explore our natural pre-dispositions and preferences, and how they impact the entire employment process. Even if we are consciously committed to fairness and equality and deliberately work to behave without prejudice, we may still possess preferences of which we are unaware.  Join us on a journey of self-discovery and gain insights to bring back to your management team. Why are we attracted to some people and not to others? How can we work around our natural pre-dispositions and become more committed to being aware of their impact? Owning our pre-dispositions is the first step!

    Our takeaways in this session will guide how you and your managers can make ethical and informed decisions for the entire employment life cycle: Harnessing our natural preferences to create an inclusive workplace and ensure ethics in the selection process, hiring, educational opportunities, compensation, and benefits.
