  • Being a Cupcake in a Doughnut World

    Date: May 1, 2017
    Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    Location: Riot Games - 7777 Bonhomme Avenue, Clayton, Missouri 63105


    Description:

    Have you ever felt like you’re a cupcake in a doughnut world because everyone around you seems nice but you feel out of place for some reason. Or, do you feel like you’re a good person who is unaware of the negative ways that you affect people? Do you want to be better about creating an inclusive workplace?

    Unconscious biases affect our perceptions, decisions, and interactions every day. They're the biases that we don't actively realize that we have. How do we address biases if we don’t know about them? YouTube, Snapchat, Facebook, and Google have all released products that were unintentionally biased -- what can you do to prevent your team from doing the same thing?

    This talk will give you a common vocabulary so you can speak to others about bias as well as recognize situations where bias occurs beyond sexism and racism to include invisible illnesses, religion, weight, etc. You’ll learn the consequences of bias, and how you can be more aware of all the bias around you that affect your team dynamics and affect the product that you are creating. We’ll discuss concrete examples of how can change the way you act today to actively work towards countering bias, and hopefully together we can make the tech world a better place to work!
