February 7, 2017, 2:30 PM – 5:30 PM, Clemson Downtown: ONE building
This exciting program will be led by Josh Davis, Director of Research at NeuroLeadership Institute and Author of Two Awesome Hours. Explore the underpinning biology of bias, and utilize a game-changing framework that mitigates bias by removing it from the process, not people.
The keynote presentation will be followed with an interactive panel discussion led by Josh Davis. Learn from various local thought leaders in the D&I space about current initiatives underway and how they are measuring the effectiveness of D&I programs.
Following the program will be an exclusive networking event on the beautiful 5th floor terrace of the One building with hors d’ oeuvres and cocktails.
