Mayo Clinic health disparities researchers and diversity leaders will present at the Forum on Workplace Inclusion’s Annual Conference, which will take place March 29–31, 2016, at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Sharonne Hayes, M.D.; Michelle van Ryn, Ph.D.; Sean Phelan, Ph.D.; and Fred Wills, MPA, will present the learning session “Seeing and Addressing Invisible Factors: Unconscious Bias” from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 30.This session will use a combination of interactive, reflective and didactic methods to help participants gain a deeper understanding of the complex interplay of “invisible” factors that affect the diversity and inclusion climate at all levels of the organization.

The conference theme, “Making ALL the Difference,” reflects an aim to have bold conversations on race, be more intentional in developing self-awareness, and foster more productive cross-racial conversations that advance inclusiveness.
