What You Don’t Know: The Science of Unconscious Bias and What To Do About it in the Search and Recruitment Process
There is overwhelming scientific evidence that unconscious bias may influence the evaluation and selection of candidates from entry-level to leadership positions in all types of organizations, including medical schools and teaching hospitals. This presentation, created for academic medicine audiences, is designed to acquaint search committees and others with this research as one step toward mitigating the effects of unconscious bias.
To learn more about unconscious bias and how it impacts search processes, access the AAMC-sponsored webinar, entitled “What You Don’t Know: The Science of Unconscious Bias and What To Do About it in the Search and Recruitment Process”.
