  • A review of the concepts of diversity and inclusion and the difference between the two
  • The business case for diversity and inclusion
  • Conscious bias, unconscious bias, and micro-aggressions
  • Bias as an impediment to diversity and inclusion efforts
  • Explanations and examples of different forms of cognitive biases
  • Methods for interrupting unconscious biases

Three key take-aways bankers will gain from this presentation:
     1. Diversity and inclusion are not the same thing
     2. Diversity and inclusion are important for your bank's business
     3. There are action steps we can take to interrupt biases
