Aeva Black – How To See Your Own Perception Bias (Ignite Seattle #40)

Just a few years ago, Aeva Black was a rising star in the tech industry, with a too many job offers to count, and invitations to speak at leading tech conferences. That changed when they changed their gender expression.

After Aeva transitioned, they experienced bias in a big way. Job offers suddenly turned into job rejections. With this sort of experience, you or I might have a negative reaction to the word “bias.” But not Aeva.

Aeva Black will join us at Ignite Seattle #40 to share a more optimistic message: we’re all biased, it’s the nature of our hormones and our biology, and that’s ok. What matters is whether we identify those biases, and what we do next.

Learn how to see your own perception biases with us on October 3 at Ignite Seattle. Tickets are on sale now.
