Fri Jul 15, 2022 9:45am – 12pm Eastern Time – New York, Jan Goodman – Defeating Unconscious Bias: 5 Strategies. 

Let’s face it, everybody has some unconscious bias. This is not in the context of talking about a preference for Mexican food or an inclination toward the color blue. The focus here is on those inflexible beliefs about whole categories of people that keep us from seeing others accurately, from making fair and appropriate decisions, and from building the kind of harmonious relationships that make our lives more successful.

Clearly, biases are bad news. On the other hand, the good news is that biases do not make us bad people. Human nature is to lump people into categories. Because of this predisposition, we are vulnerable to unconsciously believing the messages that bombard us from family, media, experience, and society as a whole. But we are not stuck with our unconscious biases; we can defeat them.

“Defeating Unconscious Bias” is designed to address the hidden biases that can affect hiring, team building and challenges the ability to create inclusivity in both professional and personal settings. A 14 minute video accompanies this presentation, offering 5 simple, actionable, and memorable strategies to enhance workplace productivity and innovation by addressing bias. The authenticity and diversity of the scenarios utilized keeps participants’ attention, and the solutions suggested support change without blame.

Monday, 18 Jul 2022, 5:45 PM – 8:15 PM EDT, WNO July 2022 Meeting , Presentation: How to Succeed In Your Next Virtual Interview, by Alex Freund. Get the details and register at wno20220718.eventbrite.com. Nowadays video interviewing has become rather common practice.

This radical change from the past, where the final interviews were conducted in person, begs the question for how to establish rapport with the interviewer. This presentation helps candidates prepare for video interviews and provides tips that assist candidates in establishing rapport and presenting themselves in the best manner.

During this session, you will:

Understand how to manage the technical aspect of video communication such as lighting, background, positioning of the camera, the use of headset and the like.

Learn general do’s and don’ts when it comes to wardrobe selection best suited for video. Learn about reading and interpreting body language, and overall demeanor.

Your body language may qualify—or disqualify—you for a position. If you’re like most people, you probably spend hours preparing for interview questions and answers, and no time on how to communicate most effectively, yet body language is the most significant factor in influencing and establishing positive rapport with the interviewer. It determines how the interviewer makes judgments and decisions about you.

Alex Freund will show you smart body language techniques to establish positive rapport and how to align your verbal and body language cues for achieving powerful, clear, and concise communication for video interviews.

Marty Latman is a CPA and has spoken at many local and international professional organization conferences.

The Ramsey Job Search Work Team meets every Monday morning. Networking starts from 9 to 9:30am and the meeting starts at 9:30 to 10:30 while virtual.  Members are expected to hold each other accountable at weekly (virtual) meetings for conducting a job search in earnest. Historically, the team has enjoyed a very high rate of “landings” by those conducting an active and vigorous job search.

Based on the Lee-Hecht-Harrison model, it’s more of a project management team made up of people committed to helping each other in the job search. By attending regularly and staying focused on key tasks, meetings serve as an advisory panel that knows you and your search and can offer answers to the questions that come up in job hunting.

Help others to help you (especially for the first few meetings) by having a prepared “elevator pitch” to introduce yourself. Jobs open up because there’s a problem to solve or a need to fill.

Please contact Beth Berkenfeld at bberk2@optonline.net or 201-797-4342 if interested in joining the group.
