Battling Biases: The Savvy, Semi-bold Person’s Guide to Inclusion and Belonging
When and why are we less ethical and egalitarian than we intend to be? In this webinar, we’ll be joined by Dolly Chugh, an award-winning psychologist and associate professor of management and organizations at the Stern School of Business at New York University. She is also the author of "The Person You Mean to Be: How Good People Fight Bias."

In this fascinating conversation, we will discuss how and why most of us, however well-intended, are still prone to race and gender bias, as well as what Chugh calls “bounded ethicality.” We’ll learn how to battle biases, champion diversity and inclusion, and advocate for those who lack power and privilege. Our Second City facilitators will also demonstrate a few of our revolutionary improv techniques that work to unlock a growth mindset and create an environment of psychological safety.

In this webinar, you will learn:

· How using improv skills can break down barriers and start conversations
· Why comedy can help communicate important messages
· How recognizing our biases can reduce their effects on ourselves and our workplaces
