Your Mind at Work: How To Be More Successful by Understanding Your Unconscious Bias Add to your Outlook Calendar

Studies show that most Americans believe discrimination is wrong and that they do not consider themselves as having prejudice, yet discrimination still occurs widely. Because we are only conscious of a small part of what occurs in our brains, we have a set of values that includes non-discrimination, but also have unconscious biases which influence our perceptions, interactions, and decisions.  

At work, these implicit biases can influence hiring and promotion, policy creation and enforcement, resource allocation, and every facet of how we interact with each other.  In this session, we’ll talk about how this impacts us, strategies to counteract bias in the workplace, and how we can use the understanding of our bias to make ourselves, and our companies, more successful.

Training delivered by the UI Chief Diversity Office. Sponsored by Student Services

Marketing Academy: Digital Marketing 101 - Terms and Strategies Defined Add to your Outlook Calendar

Digital Marketing 101: Terms and Strategies Defined, Featuring Anna Konchar MBA 2015 and Erin Crawford MBA 2016

Seventy-six percent of marketers responding to an online study sponsored by Adobe, think marketing has changed more in the past two years than in the past 50. Technology and new communication platforms have created exponential change in how marketing is performed in just a few short years. So, it is no wonder marketers find themselves in a state of “digital distress” as revealed the same study from Adobe (Digital Distress: What Keeps Marketers Up At Night).

According to the study, marketers express doubt about their skills, effectiveness and their ability to measure impact. Only 48% of digital marketers feel highly proficient in digital marketing and most digital marketers do not have formal training – 82% learn on the job. The online study surveyed 1,000 US marketers in 2013 and categorized them in the following way: marketing staff (n=499) vs. decision makers (n=436); and digital marketers (n= 263) vs. marketing generalists (n=754). Anna and Erin will lend their experience and knowledge to helping our group shape a common view of the digital landscape and discuss current digital marketing strategies and practices.
