Unconscious Bias
Location: Four Points by Sheraton, Admirals Room South, 1496 Hollis Street, Halifax
09:00h - 12:00h

The goal of this session is to understand how unconscious bias can affect our perceptions, decisions, and interactions. Unconscious biases are created by our environments and experiences. Our mind is constantly processing information, oftentimes without our conscious awareness. When we are moving fast or lack all the data, our unconscious biases fill in the gaps, influencing everything from professional decisions to our interactions with people. This session aims to raise awareness, spark conversation, and initiate action.

Speaker: April Howe, Executive Director - People and Culture Divison, Nova Scotia Public Service Commission
