Kimberly Desmond, director of the Denver Office on Women and Families was the guest speaker for the July 2017 Diversity & Inclusion Council, presenting on a topic that had been requested by the committee.
Desmond talked about Unconscious Biases and Micro Inequities. She discussed understanding and recognizing our biases, and how they can affect us in the workplace. The group then discussed possible solutions to overcome this, and how to practice more inclusive behavior.
Chamber members also shared stories of they have been impacted by unconscious biases.
At the beginning of each Council meeting, two Chamber members are allowed five minutes each to highlight their business. The August meeting featured Kristin Peregoy with Boxing Frog Marketing, and Tracy Weil with the Aurora Cultural Arts District.
