Collapse Diverse Episode 5 - Are You Conscious of Your Unconscious Bias?

Growing up in India taught Smita Tharoor the value of tolerance and the acceptance and appreciation of differences. In this podcast, Tharoor discusses her work helping others become more conscious of their unconscious bias, the value of cultural awareness, and the insights she has gained from working in the very different workplace cultures of the UK and in India.

UK-based Tharoor is the founder of Tharoor Associates, a training, coaching and organizational development company. She will be a guest speaker at SWE’s WE conference in India in April 2016, delivering a session titled “Are You Conscious of Your Unconscious Bias?”

Tharoor discusses recent research that revealed that those who believe they are not biased are in fact likely to be the most biased — and ways to work more effectively with those individuals.
