    Interrupting Unconscious Bias in HR Processes:

    From Hiring to Retention


    Seconde Nimenya, MBA

    Author & Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Practitioner


    In a world of differences, bias in hiring processes is always present. But how can we affirm our own self-worth, while valuing other people’s experiences when engaging with those we perceive as different?

    As a HR professional, how do you make the most out of diverse voices and perspectives to help your organization innovate and thrive?

      Learning Objectives

      • Recognize unconscious bias in order to interrupt it
      • Explain the impact of unconscious bias on the hiring and retention processes
      • Attract, retain and engage a diverse workforce, and promote an inclusive workplace
