Rodney Klein, Education and Training Manager – U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

As much as we like to think of ourselves as logical, rational people, the truth is we are not always aware of what motivates many of the decisions we make. Unconscious bias based on impermissible things such as race, gender, age, religion, and disability can influence many of the employment decisions our managers and supervisors make. Learn how it works and discover strategies for combating unconscious bias and minimizing its influence in the workplace.

Microaggressions: How Little Things Can Cause Big Problems
Rodney Klein, Education and Training Manager – U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

One day Jane blows up during a meeting.  She says she is tired of being interrupted and not taken seriously. Everyone leaves the meeting thinking Jane overreacted and is just touchy.  But maybe there is more to it than first meets the eye.  Micro‐aggressions and micro‐inequities are small slights that demean individuals and add up over time.  They can destroy workplace relationships and corrode productivity.  In this session you will learn what micro‐aggressions and micro‐inequities are, how they can lead to big workplace issues, and some common-sense ways to address them.
