Webinar: AIA CT presents, Addressing Bias & Equity in the AEC Industry

Wednesday August 19, 2020

3:00 PM to 4:30 PM

Diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts at work can take many forms. However, those efforts are often undermined by bias, which may be unconscious. For any employer working toward a fair and inclusive workplace, having certain individuals unfairly excluded or limited at work is problematic. In the modern U.S. workplace, unconscious, or implicit, bias can affect our decisions and requires strategic thinking to ensure that employees and management are aware of it and committed to eradicating its influence. This webinar will discuss strategies to mitigate unconscious bias at work and how to influence that strategy from the top down. REGISTER 1.5 LU, Free

Hosted by AIA Connecticut’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, and supported by the AIA CT Women in Architecture Committee and NOMA CT, the second of the 3-part series focuses on unconscious bias and equitable practices in the AEC Industry.
