Join us at a special time, 3pm ET, for this Jam Session with Yassmin Abdel-Magied to talk about the current research around unconscious bias and how it manifests in our workplaces.

Tuesday, January 31, 2017 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST

Unconscious bias can be an obstacle for women — especially minority women — when it comes to trying to advance in their careers. But how do you fight a challenge you don't know you're facing? Join us at a special time, 3pm ET, for this Jam Session with Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Founder and President of Youth Without Borders, to talk about the current research around unconscious bias and how it manifests in our workplaces, how it affects women in male dominated industries like engineering, and what we can do about it.

Yassmin Abdel-Magied is a mechanical engineer, social advocate, writer and petrol head and is the 2015 Queensland Young Australian of the Year. She advocates for the empowerment of youth, women and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and founded non-for-profit Youth Without Borders at age 16.

We'll be live tweeting this Jam Session so be sure to follow along with @EllevateNtwk and #UnconsciousBias!

Hi Catherine, Have you tried opening with another browser? The video's working on my end, so I'll need some more details from you to be able to troubleshoot. I'll email you shortly. Johanna
