Date: October 2
Time: 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Location: Re-Humanizing People Data for a Brighter & More Inclusive Workplace, hosted by Equity Matters
Despite best intentions, bias is inherent in the data we use in our day-to-day decision-making, negatively impacting diversity and inclusion in the workplace and having real-world implications on people’s lives. Join Heather Whiteman, PhD., a people analytics expert, for a dialogue on the role of data and bias in the workplace. Please bring your experiences and ideas and kindly consider the questions below to guide the conversation:
• Empowered by algorithms ignorant of bias, how do we maximize analytics to ensure today’s unconscious biases don’t creep into tomorrow’s decision-making?
• How do we leverage people’s data in the right way, not just for their own sake?
• How can data help to eradicate human bias and create a genuinely equitable & inclusive workplace?
