In this first session of a two-part series, participants were be introduced to information on how we all form biases and how they can become a limiting force in our culture. The discussion was be moderated by Anne Hunnex, and featured three thoughtful panelists: Poyee Chiu, Mark DeFee, and Sherry Walsh. This session provided the foundations of how we all form biases and how they can become a limiting force in our culture. When we consider gender bias, we realize how women are seen through a biased lens that limits their potential and their leadership opportunities. After learning the basics of bias, we heard from a panel of professionals on how they have observed or experienced gender bias.
This session was presented by the Women In Leadership Lab that started after the 2021 LFC Summit.

The Leadership Forum Community (LFC) acknowledges that one of our most pressing leadership challenges is understanding racism and how it exists and impacts our organizations, communities, and the fabric of a civil society.
In recognition of Black History Month, our February 22nd learning session was brought to you by the LFC Unlearning Racism Lab in partnership with Polarity Partnerships. In this session we embraced the LFC values of diversity and inclusion and sought to advance our leadership journeys through reflection, dialogue, and an exploration into Polarities as we expand conscious leadership to better lead and serve in our organizations and communities.
