Crossing Bridges Series: Recognizing and Neutralizing Bias


Recent events in our nation have brought into clearer focus the critical need for organizations to create a diverse and inclusive culture where everyone can thrive. Enhancing awareness, identifying and addressing unconscious biases, and creating an environment where all feel comfortable bringing their authentic selves to the workplace are practices that must be part of every organization’s workforce development strategy.

The MACPA is proud to partner with the Ohio Society of CPAs (OSCPA) on this important journey by participating in their Crossing Bridges Series. OSCPA created this series to help organizations advance their understanding and implementation of diversity and inclusion (D + I) initiatives. Long considered the right thing to do, D + I training has not always been viewed as essential. That mindset must change and the time to do so is now.

Tune in to hear from a variety of D + I thought leaders on ways your organization can engage in these important conversations and take your D + I efforts to the next level. Together, we will learn about the complexities and value involved in bringing awareness and sensitivity training to employees with a goal of building a more diverse and welcoming workplace.

Recognizing and Neutralizing Bias – Presenter: Qiana Williams, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer/Vice President, Human Resources- Ohio Health

An important part of your organization’s diversity and inclusion journey is developing an understanding and awareness of unconscious bias and finding ways to address it. Discover the difference between explicit and implicit bias.
