Learn how the unconscious operates — as well as tools for modifying your own thinking and behaivor — at an interactive presentation, “Bias: Moving the Unconscious to the Conscious,” from 7 to 9 pm Friday, July 14, at the School of Leadership Session in Tucson, Ariz.

Dr. Pat Salgado

Sponsored by Fielding’s Inclusion Council and Office of the President, and led by alumna Pat Selgado and student Julie Baskin-Brooks, the event will introduce both relevant scholarship and implications for organizational practice.

Following recent clinical studies of memory formation and retention, Dr. Salgado builds an argument that bias is a biological function, a singular competency and manifested in all humans — a survival and evolutionary tool. The argument requires searching through new cognitive evidence made possible by technological advances and new research in memory building and memory retention.

Baskin-Brooks, a doctoral student in Organizational Development & Change, will address perceptions and reality. While at Sysco, she launched the company’s Diversity & Inclusion Council and developed its first Diversity Roadmap, Diversity Training Curriculum and Measurement Systems.

Fielding President Katrina Rogers and faculty member and Diversity & Inclusion Council chair Dr. Placida Gallegos will also take part in the discussion.
