F6 Your Perception, Your Bias: How those are affecting your daily decisions and interactions

You will want to attend this interactive session as we explore your perception and bias. We will unpack and become more aware of ourselves and understand how that impacts our professional lives. By examining how we perceive, categorize, and process incoming information, we can understand why we do what we do, and how we can improve by not discriminating.
