*FULLY BOOKED* Unconscious Bias Awareness

***This event will not be recorded***

As actuaries, we are trained to search out the bias in data and analysis. But, as human beings, we are all susceptible to unconscious bias. These biases serve an important purpose for us but can negatively impact our decision making.

In this session, we will build an awareness of what unconscious bias is. We will start to explore our own biases, what we can do to address unconscious bias, and the benefits of doing so.

Please note: This meeting will be in meeting format; therefore, you will have the ability to unmute and mute yourself to speak. You will also have the option to turn your camera on or off during the meeting. NB: We do advise you to please keep keep your cameara on for the duration of the meeting as this is an interactive session, with the use of breakout rooms, too. 

Please also note: As spaces are limited, if, after you make a reservation for this meeting and you can no longer make it, please cancel your reservation as soon as you know. You can do this via your reservation on the SAI website or getting in touch with us at and letting us know.
