Dec 16, 2020
The American Society of Appraisers (ASA), Appraisal Institute (AI), American Society of Farm Managers & Rural Appraisers (ASFMRA), MBREA and the National Society of Real Estate Appraisers (NSREA) have partnered to host a complimentary virtual session, entitled “Unconscious Bias Virtual Session for the Appraisal Profession”, January 13, 2021 from 2:00-3:30 PM EST.

This important diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) training session will explore the recent spotlight put on the profession and address unconscious bias, particularly what it is, why it matters and appraisers’ responsibilities; as well as how to move forward with intention and purpose.

Gary and Janet Smith, co-founders of Ivy Planning Group will facilitate a thoughtful and respectful visit of the impact of multiple crises—from COVID-19, economic uncertainty and social unrest—as a context for learning about unconscious bias, including how it often shows up in subtle ways. Key takeaways will include raised awareness, improved understanding and new skills.
