Bring Your Bias: Recognizing and Overcoming Unconscious Decision-Making
Binnu Palta Hill, Assistant Dean for Diversity and Inclusion, Wisconsin School of Business

Cultural dexterity has become an increasingly valuable skill in today’s diverse and global workplace. According to a survey of 1370 CEO’s across the globe conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers, it is now considered to be a critical professional skill rather than a ‘soft skill’. Research shows that diverse teams operating in an inclusive culture outperform their homogeneous counterparts, and are more innovative. Team members in these groups are much more likely to have a shared vision of success and are personally committed to the success of the team. These individuals also have high levels of job satisfaction and high rates of retention. One of the key challenges in cultivating an inclusive environment, where each member of the team can contribute to his/her fullest potential, is bias. Given that bias is an inherently human trait, in this session, we will explore what it means to be a culturally competent professional and an inclusive leader by learning to recognize and address our own blind spots. We will review the latest research on how unconscious bias affects behavior, and strategies for addressing unconscious bias in the workplace.

Owning Our Stories: A Pathway to Authentic Leadership
Chief Kristen Roman, UW Madison Police

Author Brene Brown says, “To be alive is to be vulnerable; to be a leader is to be vulnerable every minute of the day. You don’t get to opt out.” Authentic leadership requires courage, emphasizes self-awareness and promotes legitimacy through relational transparency and fair-mindedness. In this session, participants will explore the process of cultivating authentic leadership and learn the importance of owning our stories. Understanding that balance is vital to career endurance and mistakes are an essential ingredient of success, authentic leadership asks us that we let ourselves be seen and sit with discomfort. In so doing, our vulnerabilities have the power to lead us to our greatest strengths.

Mindfulness: It’s More Than Meditation
Julia Yates, UW Health

Learn to use mindful awareness to examine stress reactions and resiliency tools from a place of non-judgmental curiosity. Discussion will start with defining mindfulness and exploring the powerful role of vulnerability when using mindfulness to increase self-awareness. Openly and honestly explore triggers and reactions to stress, while identifying what works to bring us back to a state of wellness and resiliency. We all react to stress, and we all need personal resiliency strategies that work for us.
