Presented by PwC, join the William & Mary community in welcoming members of PwC's National Diversity Team for a conversation on implicit bias. We will explore unconscious biases and blind spots, and looking at ways we can "outsmart our minds" to get to more inclusive decision-making and build empathy and understanding of others.
