Within her field, she’s spearheaded key issues like state flexibility for exchanges and appropriate accounting treatment of the health insurance tax.

We all have biases which can impact our ability to be inclusive leaders and strong employees. Biases may have a direct bearing on hiring, retaining talent, and career progression. They can also affect morale and engagement. What’s more, organizations attract, retain and lose customers based on biases that can be subtle and difficult to understand.
Lake Forest Graduate School of Management’s Business Leader Faculty® Erica Nelson helps you to understand your unconscious biases and take steps to mitigate their effects.
