About this Event

CAN-TECH Women in Technology takes a close look at how to stop the cycle of bias in corporate culture in a special, intimate workshop with award-winning life coach and author, Ritu Bhasin.

At this exclusive workshop, Ritu will show us how we can build more diverse and inclusive environments by identifying ways to spot and interrupt biases—both conscious and unconscious. In understanding how to address biases, our workplaces can become more inclusive, and we can build happier, more engaged, and more successful teams.

Through interactive discussions, you will discover the three ways that bias prevents law firms and in-house teams from thriving: dishing out bias, receiving bias, and internalizing bias. Touching on the latest neuroscience, leadership, and mindfulness research, Ritu will reveal strategies to help you create more innovative organizations.
