Boosting Your Bias Immunity

By Lauren Isaacson

Session type

Breakout Session


Thu, 24 Oct 2019


Breakout room 2 - side wing

About this session

Bias is everywhere. It affects design choices, product decisions, whom we hire, how we live. It’s like polluted air – impossible to avoid, but possible to identify and filter.

By becoming more aware of different types of bias, we can conduct better research and make more objective decisions.

In this session, we will discuss different types of biases, strategies to avoid them, and open the floor to talk about biases we encounter and what we can do about them.

Our recommendation:

Please head to your breakout session room 10 minutes ahead of the start time to keep everything on schedule and make sure you get a seat, as space is limited in each room except the main stage. Thank you!
