The revised UK Unconscious Bias Initiative (UBI) 3-part learning and dialog series is now available for open enrollment registration for UK employees through MyUK.

The UBI seeks to create space to reflect on and discuss how each one of us impacts the promise of UK’s Strategic Vision. We begin by looking at how patterns inform our behaviors, sometimes without our intention. We will examine how our behaviors can both create and repair harm. We will work together to create action plans that align our passions and power to show all who engage with UK they are valued.
