CII1913. Blissfully Unconscious: How Bias is impacting women in the Workplace
Field(s) of Study: TBD
Knowledge Level: TBD | CPE: 1.5

Speaker:
Yasmine El-Ramly, CPA, CGMA, CITP, Senior Technical Manager, Association of International Certified Professional Accountants


Each of us brings a lifetime of experiences and cultural influences that create our unique mental programming or non-conscious expectations or stereotypes that affect the judgments of ourselves and others. Our mental programming allows efficient, but sometime inaccurate, processing of information. While unintentional, relying solely on our mental programming leads to responses outside of our awareness and even conflict with our conscious attitudes or ideals - unconscious bias. Imagine how unconscious bias may impact how we relate to different situations at work if left unattended. In this session, Yasmine will hold a conversation about unconscious bias and how it affects women in the workplace.

Learning objectives:

  • Provide an overview and raise awareness of the different types of unconscious bias in the workplace
  • Learn and discuss strategies to help uncover and identify unconscious bias in the workplace
  • Showcase AICPA resources that organizations and individuals can leverage to foster an inclusive culture
