Women as Future Leaders (WFL) invited you to an ‘Unconscious Bias’ workshop with McKinsey in London on Friday 11th March 2016
We can’t ignore the issue of unconscious bias. It’s just in us, planted and reinforced by the media from a very young age. There was a recent study at Yale where scientists were given two versions of the same résumé for a job opening. The résumés were identical—except for the candidate’s first name. The “male” candidate was judged to be more talented and experienced; he was selected for the job more often, and at a higher salary. That’s huge—and it happens all the time.
We invite you to join Lori, our firm Diversity Manager, Women as Future Leaders and McKinsey consultants passionate about moving forward their own and the firm’s awareness of unconscious bias, for a lively presentation and discussion event.
Our previous events were a big success and we’re excited to bring this important discussion back to the network.
The event will take place:
Wedneday 23th March 2016 at 5.30pm
The deadline for applications is Wednesday 16th March 2016.
