Chamber Women’s Council To Host Unconscious Bias Seminar

Wednesday, July 28, 2021
The Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce Women’s Council will present “Overcoming Unconscious Bias in the Workplace,” on Monday, Aug. 23 at noon at the Chamber office, 225 Keith St. SW. Dr. Jason Robinson, associate professor of education at Lee University, will lead the seminar. The program is sponsored by Tennessee Wesleyan University. 
 
Organizers said, "Unconscious biases influence a vast majority of workplace decisions. If not kept in check, organizations may let these biases influence decisions in ways that could be harmful to the organization. These biases refer to the associations that are made between different qualities and societal categories such as race, gender or disability, and are judgements made without conscious awareness.
 
"In this seminar Dr.
Robinson will explain how to help make an organization a more supportive and engaging place to work by understanding the perceptual, institutional and psychological processes that impact the ways people interact with each other." 
 
Dr. Robinson is a local, state and national award-winning educator. He holds a bachelor of science in human development from Lee University, a master's in educational administration and supervision and a doctoral degree from the University of Tennessee with a concentration in learning and leadership. 
 
Chamber members can register to attend in-person with lunch provided for $20 per person, or virtual for $10. Attendance is limited. The deadline to register is Thursday, Aug. 19. Registration can be completed through the community events calendar at ClevelandChamber.com. Members who would like to use admission credits should call the Chamber office at 423-472-6587.
