CAN'T MISS 2019 First Quarter Events at Richmond SHRM

January 31:  Alt-Perspectives
Get a preview of this hot topic from Scott’s video below

Scott Wayne

As psychologists have taught us with the use of optical illusions, two people can interpret a single image differently depending on where they sit. The same goes for forming opinions on the same issue – we all have biases that influence how we interpret various pieces of information. How we see a set of facts determines what we glean from those facts.

While there aren't "alt-facts," there are "alt-perspectives.” Scott will walk us through the science of biases and how we naturally see what we seek. He will identify the risk in our declining ability to empathize with those who don't share our views and break down the risks of the digital stacks and bubbles we increasingly live in.
