Keynote #2:

“MITIGATE UNCONSCIOUS BIAS – AND TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR OWN DECISIONS”

If you have a brain – you have unconscious bias. Unconscious Bias is the biggest disabler of diversity, and number one enemy of innovation

What is ‘unconscious bias’?

Our brain automatically tells us that we are safe with people who look, think and act similar to us. That was our survival trick on the savannah and still is useful most of the time today. The brain uses short-cuts to navigate an incredible amount of information which leads us to make snap decisions about who we prefer and who we avoid.
These automatic preferences and prejudices are what we call ‘biases’. As such, unconscious bias is the #1 contributor to sameness thinking, thus a disabler of diversity and an enemy of innovation.
