Unconscious Bias in the Workplace

Summary

“Who, me? I’m not biased. I’m totally open-minded.” While you may be thinking these thoughts, even the most ethical person harbors unconscious bias. What is unconscious bias, exactly? Take a look at the agricultural landscape. Unconscious bias has pervaded the industry for centuries by leaving most with a stereotypical image of agriculture.

This webinar is a must for those seeking to continually promote diversity in agriculture.
