The Psychology of Bias - Workshop by Saudi Aramco (Parallel Session) Sessions Area

Sponsored by

Biases; don’t think you have them? You may be surprised to find out that you’re wrong – you do. The word conjures all sorts of negative connotations, but the fact is, biases are part of being human. In this session, we will discuss how the human mind manages and sorts information, how biases are formed – good and bad – as well as some common types. Also, we’ll dig into how to identify it when bias sneaks into our decision-making, how our biases can influence what we see and how we see it, and how to manage our biases and encourage inclusion both inside and outside of our professional lives. This will be an engaging, thought-provoking session that will introduce these concepts for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of how our minds work, and how they might not be quite as reliable as we hope.

Panel Discussion - The Role of Diversity in Organizational Adaptation in a Post-COVID Era Stage Area

Sponsored by

When people hear the word ‘diversity’, they often think of simply the presence of different people in the workplace. What is not at the forefront of their thoughts is how diversity can help organizations bounce back from traumatic events, like COVID-19, through listening to the different perspectives of the people in their organizations. In this session, you will hear the perspectives of senior leaders and D&I experts on how organizations can leverage diversity to adapt to the “new normal”.
