This fascinating session uses the latest cognitive and behavioral research along with demonstrations of implicit association experiments to help attendees unveil hidden biases that impact decisions related to accounting and auditing.

Next Step Series – Inclusion: Building a Sustainable Culture of Diversity
There's a perfect storm going on. We've got the new economy, a new generation coming online, and we have LinkedIn pulling people away from us and bringing them to us. Also, there's ethical issues. All of these issues surround and apply to the issue of diversity. Simply put, diversity is the mix of people you have in an organization, Inclusion is how you integrate and manage them. In the "New Normal" world of the modern economy, having a culture that encourages the full participation of all people on the team is a real competitive advantage. This one hour fast-paced course updates one's strategic view of the world of Diversity and Inclusion, and applies it to the specialized world we work in.

Corporate Ethics Cases in Diversity and Inclusion
The AICPA Code of Professional Conduct makes it clear that workplace harassment and discrimination is unacceptable, but gives little further guidance.
