What Does Unconscious Bias Have to Do with Communication & Relationships
Presented by Megan Johnson-Rox, MA, CLC, Chief, JMJ Communication Group

How do you know if your perception of someone's words or behavior is accurate or not? It becomes clear pretty quickly when you get angry, hurt, annoyed, aggravated, offended, insulted, etc. Our perceptions are naturally biased because what affects our perceptions are our beliefs, values and past life experiences. Our perceptions can often be incorrect, so checking your perception is necessary to having good communication and good relationships. It also helps you see that your perception of others, is just that, a perception and not the “truth” or the only way of seeing/understanding something.

It’s you who makes meaning from someone’s words, non-verbals and behavior, not them. Successful communication is when the meaning that the person sending the message intended to send is understood by the listener/viewer exactly as the sender meant.

Unconscious bias is a popular term that has many applications. Our perception of other's communication and behavior involves many things that we’re not aware of. It’s unconscious. The definition of bias is "an inclination of outlooka personal judgment”. That’s what perception is: your outlook and judgement. So, when I talk about unconscious bias, I’m referring to our perception and everything that affects our perception, our beliefs, values, past experiences, etc. When you are aware of what is controlling how you view the world and others, you can take control of it. You will start to see your communication and relationships change for the better when you become aware of your perception and not let it unconsciously control your reactions to others and the world around you.

Learning outcomes:

  1. You will better understand your own bias in your daily interactions with others,
  2. You will learn to become more aware of your perception and how it is affecting your relationships. 

All good communication and relationships start with an accurate perception – a perception about what the person meant by their words &/or actions.

Managing Talent Acquisition with Data
Presented by Matt Lowney, Director, Recruitment, Quorum Health Resources

Data is king but relationships win. As recruiters and recruiting leaders we must balance the human side of the candidate experience with our organizations' need to manage data, budgets, etc. Often organizations miss the mark and candidates suffer - they allow process and data to supersede the personal touch resulting in poor employer brands and negative candidate experiences. This approach, ironically, impedes our ability to attract talent.
In this session we will work through ideas to humanize the recruiting experience for everyone - recruiters, candidates and hiring managers - and put data in the right perspective.

Schedule: Doors open at 11:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet lunch begins at 11:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 12:00 noon.

Lunch:

  • Members: $28 by end of business Monday, March 11, $38 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $43 by end of business Monday, March 11, $53 afterwards.* (See below)**
  • MT|SHRM Students: $14 by end of business Monday, March 11, $19 afterwards.*

*On-line registration will close by end of business 2 days prior to the event. Our ability to accommodate walk-in registrations will be based on space availability.
