Beyond Bias Move from Awareness to Action

from the Center for Creative Leadership

with Aaron Miller & Zuri Johnson, Leadership Louisville Center

Who it’s for

All leadership levels are welcome; we will put you into learning groups of peers with similar levels of experience.

Why this course

Knowing that bias has real-world consequences – such as stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination – effective leaders recognize that understanding and intentionally navigating these biases are critical to sustaining success.

How do we create a practical and effective road map for dealing with bias – on individual, team, and organizational levels?

This application-based workshop is designed by the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) to help leaders transform current bias habits to be more equitable, diverse, and inclusive.
