Ninth Annual Inclusion Conference

08.24.17 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM
LaCentre Conference and Banquet Facility, 25777 Detroit Road, Westlake, OH 44145

A year ago, the Commission on Economic Inclusion brought Harvard professor Mahzarin Banaji to Cleveland. She effectively demonstrated how even the most well-intentioned people unwittingly allow unconscious thoughts and feelings to influence apparently objective decisions.

This year, at the Commission’s ninth annual Inclusion Conference, four experts will continue that conversation with a deeper dive into the concept of bias, specifically as it relates to attracting and selecting top talent for your organization.

Who should attend:

  • Diversity and inclusion practitioners
  • Senior human resources managers
  • Supplier diversity managers
  • Procurement managers
