Implicit & Unconscious Bias in the Workplace - May 8th, 2018

Being biased is human; it is a product of how we are socialized as individuals. We need to understand our own biases and how we react to people that act differently from our socially engrained expectations (our bias). Bias is often evident in workplace culture where women are not on an equal basis with men in terms of participation and leadership.

The question business leaders need to ask is, “Where is unconscious bias in my company and what is the impact?”

This session is focused on understanding and identifying Unconscious Bias at work through discussion, self-reflection, and experience-based learning.

Led by a professional WinSETT facilitator, at the end of the session you will:
• Understand how Unconscious Bias works based upon the research
• Understand the importance and Impact on workplace culture
• Identify Stereotype Threat & the Myth of Meritocracy
• Discuss and learn tips to counter the effects of Unconscious Bias

Tech Mash Up: "Identify and Reach Highly-Qualified Leads in Global, Niche Markets" - May 15th, 2018

Presented by NicheMktg

How do ICT companies effectively connect with their ideal customers, when they don’t know who or where they are? Do you want your company to remain the small fish in the big pond, or become the big fish of the small pond?

NicheMktg, a Winnipeg-based company specialized in B2B lead generation for technical-savvy companies, will present some key aspects that companies who sell (or want to sell) to a very narrow, international audience, must consider to find and identify prospects that are, by default:
- anonymous;
- well-educated; and
- skeptical of marketing

We’ll go beyond raising the visibility of your business, branding or creating awareness. This session will not discuss SEO, landing pages or amazing web design. But if you want to understand (1) how to make your business relevant to your niche, global target audience, and (2) how to leverage your expertise for lead generation purposes, you won’t want to miss this presentation.
