Implicit Bias and Gen Z Hiring

Generation Z (born after 1995) is the next wave of talent entering the workforce. They are highly diverse, globally connected, and have reinvented how we approach media. Companies have a lot of ideas about who they are but what does that say about our own biases? A common mistake in hiring is (unintentionally) letting implicit biases affect our hiring practices. This workshop will identify implicit biases, explore current hiring practices, and how they impact our hiring decisions.
