Jessica Sharp, Founder & CEO, Sharp Brain Consulting

Meeting Date: February 23, 2021

All of us have unconscious biases, stories we make up about groups of people before we interact with them. These biases do not make us good or bad people, they exist because we have a brain. Our unconscious biases can have a negative impact on our interactions and leadership decisions. These biases have created and continued inequities across organizations and systems, and many people do not know or believe they
exist.

This session will provide an overview of unconscious bias and provide the brain science necessary to understand and mitigate the impacts of bias.

On March 2 (11:45-12:30) there will be a BONUS interactive ZOOM seminar entitled:

“What YOU can do about Unconscious Bias”

Registration for both events is available in the calendar at Greenville Rotary Website or,
