Do you want your company to be a place where people of different cultures, races, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, and ages can succeed?

CCEJ’s Workplace Inclusion Network (WIN) presents a luncheon training series to help you create a work environment where everyone can thrive. If you are a Human Resources manager, leader of a diverse team, or an Executive-level decision maker, or simply interested in making your office a more inclusive place, this opportunity is for you!

WIN Training #1: Unconscious Bias 101  How does our psychology affect our interactions with different people at work? Our panel of research experts and HR professionals will discuss how we can become more aware of bias, how it affects our behavior and decisionmaking at the office, and what policies and protocols we can put into place to mitigate the negative impacts that bias may have on hiring, supervision, and team culture.

Presented in partnership with TABC and the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce.







Location: TABC, 6375 Paramount Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90805.
