Advancing the Work of Unconscious Bias
The Boston Club is committed to advancing diversity and inclusion through the strategic priorities of its Diversity and Inclusion Committee (DIC):

*  Education and Awareness *  Resources and Tools *  External Partnerships
Unconscious bias is one key area of focus and is an important aspect of leadership development. DIC members collaborate with other committees to examine this important topic. In addition to programming support, the DIC provides a tool kit of resources on unconscious bias. Our goal is to inspire self-reflection, conversations and meaningful action. We believe this enriches our The Boston Club community and our individual leadership lenses.  Stay tuned for other resources, suggested events and forums.
