Brian Nosek - Speaking Engagements
Conscious experience provides an immediate, compelling, and incomplete account of the mind. Much of perception, thinking, and action occurs outside of conscious awareness or conscious control. Because of that, judgment and action can be unintentionally influenced by factors that we do not recognize, and may not value.
Through a non-profit, Project Implicit, Brian Nosek delivers lectures and training on implicit bias, diversity and inclusion, biases in decision-making, leadership, and barriers to innovation. The training provides education on these topics, may increase audience members' motivation and efficacy for taking action, and provides direction for next steps to pursue personal and organizational innovation and change. Training draws on the latest scientific evidence and translates basic science into implications for organizational practice. Training is customized to the organization's business sector and goals.
Training can be delivered to senior leadership, managers, or individual contributors and is adaptable to regional, national or international audiences. Nosek has conducted training with groups across a variety of sectors - corporate (senior leadership, HR, managers, and individual contributors), education, finance, government, law, medicine and health, military, and public policy both domestically (U.S.) and internationally. Illustrative examples of audiences and organizations are available in Nosek's curriculum vitae .
The most common initial engagement is a keynote presentation at a large meeting or an intensive half-day workshop. The typical session includes three components - experiential demonstrations of how thoughts and feelings operate outside of conscious awareness or conscious control, introduction and demonstration of implicit biases, and discussion of implications for personal and organizational practices. The latter portions are customized for the sector and particular organizational goals. A lecture format is more appropriate for large meetings (150-5,000 attendees) and is usually 60-90 minutes with time for Q-and-A. A workshop format is more appropriate for smaller groups (5-200 attendees) and is usually 2-3 hours with substantial discussion. The fee structure for Nosek's engagements offer incentives for organizations to take follow-up steps to use the scientific evidence to improve organizational practices. Further, discounted rates are available for non-profit organizations, and other researchers that have lower rates have been certified by Project Implicit to deliver similar content.
