Virtual Convening

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 environment, GMAC is committed to supporting you, the graduate management education community, in these unpredictable times. 

Virtual Discussion Forum: Is Your Admissions Process Biased?

You've likely heard of implicit or unconscious bias, but how does bias impact your admissions process? Discuss with peers the ways your program identifies and addresses bias at each part of the admissions funnel. Hear how others are incorporating bias-mitigating techniques, and how to make the most of implicit bias training sessions.
