    The human brain is wired to recognize patterns and make generalizations, even
    those based on faulty or incomplete information. And it does not require that we harbor ill
    will or animus towards other people. In fact, most often, our biases are not even our own,
    but rather those that have been taught to us.

    In this eye-opening presentation, the presenter will use videos to show you just how
    easy it is to form these biases, how they manifest themselves in the way we treat customers,
    clients and colleagues, and most importantly, how we can reduce the effect of these biases
    by recognizing and compensating for them.
