While this webinar is advertised and oriented towards performance evaluations, it addresses the more general issue of bias and offers useful approaches to interrupting bias. The general topic of bias and interrupting bias is relevant to hiring practices, performance evaluations and just simply working effectively with others. Joan discusses how to give constructive criticism and effective positive comments and reviews three common biases that women and minorities encounter which she calls “Prove-It-Again!”, “Tightrope”, and “Tug–of-war”.
