The PRSA Foundation is proud to join the Center for Talent Innovation, the organization driving cutting-edge research on today’s most challenging talent management concerns, to present webinars on two seminal issues: the hidden costs of bias and addressing racial tensions in the workplace. This two-part series will offer strategies to lessen the perception of bias and bridge the divide in communications at work.
Registration complimentary for PRSA Members. Non-members $200.
WEBINAR PART 1: Disrupt Bias, Drive Value Monday
December 4, 3-4 p.m. EDT, Noon to 1 p.m. PDT
Efforts to combat bias by raising awareness among leaders have fallen short. Minority representation in public relations remains inadequate and growth is unacceptably slow. New research conducted by the Center for Talent Innovation (CTI) in partnership with PRSA Foundation, offers a fresh approach to identifying and removing obstacles to much-needed progress. Drawing on many years of research, CTI will provide strategies for lessening the perception of bias to more fully engage a diverse range of talent.
The webinar is being presented by Laura Sherbin, co-president at the Center for Talent Innovation (CTI) and a managing partner at Hewlett Consulting Partners. She is an economist who specializes in the creation of competitive advantage through inclusion and diversity.
WEBINAR PART 2: Easing Racial Tensions at Work
Tuesday, January 9, 3-4 p.m. EDT, Noon to 1 p.m. PDT
Seven out of 10 Americans view race relations in the United States as poor – nearly matching a record high, according to a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Reports of hate-motivated confrontations thread through our newsfeeds and are amplified on social media. Outside our own social circles, we don’t talk about these painful encounters. We don’t discuss these experiences with people unlike ourselves, and certainly we don’t talk about them at work. That silence, as new research from the Center for Talent Innovation (CTI) reveals, is costing us dearly. This webinar, is based on CTI’s recent research and will discuss the cost of silence, the benefits of courageous conversation, and the best ways – at work – to bridge the divides in our communications.
The webinar is being presented by Ripa Rashid, co-president at the Center for Talent Innovation (CTI) and a managing partner at Hewlett Consulting Partners, specializing in global talent and leadership strategies.
