Our Elimination of Bias: Cognitive Distortions, Biases & How We Can Do Better presentation focuses on the role our implicit biases play in our everyday lives, the laws in place to protect individuals from bias, and what we can do to fight our own biases. We delve into the ways in which our federal and state governments have attempted to fight back against biases in order to protect patients, clients, and employees while also looking at the source of these biases. Implicit biases are an element of human nature, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be mitigated or overcome. This presentation helps individuals recognize their own biases, the impacts they have on the economy, our jobs, and the individuals around us, and the ways in which we can tackle our biases and improve upon them.

Mr. Eischen also addresses the pandemic as presenting learning opportunities to identify and work toward eliminating bias.
