Blind Spot: Heighten Bias Awareness and Center DEI in your Hiring

16 Jun 2020
3:03pm to 4:03pm
Breakout Session

Using The Washington Chorus's (TWC) own recent artistic director search as fodder for learning, search chair Kara Morrissey is joined by equity and bias awareness consultant Alysia Lee for a behind the scenes look at how TWC worked to center bias awareness, equity, diversity, and inclusion in all parts of its search process. This session will begin as a case study review highlighting the lessons of TWC's search process that are applicable for choruses of all sizes and types. Participants will learn about why bias awareness and DEI centering matters in all your chorus’s hiring processes, and leave with concrete steps your chorus can take now to improve its work and impact in this space.
