NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Awareness of unconscious bias and social stereotypes was the topic of a community leadership forum hosted by the Junior League of Summit at the Summit Speech School, an event which featured speaker Katherin Nukk Freeman, Co-Founder and President of SHIFT HR Compliance Training.
The session, designed to be both engaging and informative, focused on identifying unconscious bias and creating a culture where others are empowered to speak up. Freeman’s presentation was well received by the dozens of community members that attended the event.
The JLS' goal for the program was to inform informed attendees about social awareness both in the workplace and in the community, and encourage people to create a culture in which our community members feel included, supported and valued.
“In light of recent events in our community, we felt the time was right to have a conversation about Unconscious Bias; and our Community Forums are a perfect venue. Thank you to Katherin for eye opening and worthwhile presentation,” said JLS President, Erika Melchiorre.
The Junior League of Summit is a nonprofit, charitable, and educational organization of women who are committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
