All ACG Members (everyone welcome!) and guests are invited to join Dr. Arin N. Reeves at a Women in Finance sponsored luncheon as we address the myriad of "mental shortcuts" we take daily, and how they impact the way we work with and value others. Understanding these shortcuts is critical to the diversity and inclusion journey of any leader and/or organization, and how to interrupt it. Dr. Reeves will use research studies to show how gender and racial/ethnic bias can play out in the workplace and provide practical strategies on how to interrupt these biases in order to contribute to a more inclusive work environment.
