WISC and Wine Event
November 10th, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm MDT$25
The series ‘WISC and Wine’ is a late afternoon, early evening event, depending on our presenters home base, where we invite you to join us – virtually – as you relax with a glass of wine and listen and learn.
Conversation is created in a relaxing space to promote open discussion on topics critical to personal and professional success, in our human and technology challenges and experiences.

We all hold communication biases. Some serve us, some hold us back, some are irrational, some are learned early in our lives, some are cultural or cast, some are gender based and self-imposed, and some develop as we experience life. We must ask ourselves, what biases will we create? Can we be honest about our biases? Can we correct wrong biases?
To prepare for the event, please read the article on this link Proving the Critics Wrong on the Impact of Diversity Training written by our speaker for training magazine in their January/February 2019 publication. Can you identify which commitment/action-plan most resonated with you and why?
Please send any questions by November 6, 2020, that we forward to Neal, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Neal will collect all the questions and work to include as many as possible in the time we have for the evening.
If you are in Human Resources, a leadership position, or are personally struggling to manage the unconscious biases you are facing, you MUST attend. Neal will share from his experience – personally and professionally – over the past 5+ decades of what he has learned about the sociology and psychology of unconscious bias and how we can create change – if we chose to.
This event follows both the Women’s, on Wednesday September 23, 2020 and the Men’s, on Wednesday October 14, 2020, discussions on unconscious biases, how we individually identify our biases. Each event identified that everyone has biases, individually they are different and yet, similar. We hope you join us to discover ‘what is next’?
