    Please note: The exam application deadlines close on Oct. 21 and Nov. 11 at 11:59 PM, ET.

    The 2017 Exam schedule is not out yet. The exam will be rewritten for the 2017 year. If you have 2015/2016 Study Materials it will be less effective after February 2017. 

    Are you interested in taking the exam, but need help preparing? There is a study group that meets a minimum of twice a month until end of January 2017. If you are interested in participating, you will need to have the current 2016 study guide materials purchased through SHRM. Please contact Kirstin Guptill at certification@wchra.org for more information. 

    2017 study group or preparation opportunities are being discussed now. If you are not ready to test yet and think 2017 will be your year, please contact Kirstin to let her know you are interested in information, and watch these blogs for future announcements.

    From the Ad Council

    The Truth about Bias and Prejudice.

    Most Americans agree that people should be treated respectfully and fairly. Yet many people in the United States still report feeling discriminated against. The reason might be that we’re actually discriminating unintentionally. We do 98% of our thinking in our subconscious mind, and that’s where we collect and store implicit biases.

    The important thing is to educate ourselves and watch for biases when they surface. Because that’s the only way to stop labeling individuals and groups with our biases.

    Big things are at stake, too. Implicit bias influences how people are treated and how they interact with each other. It can also perpetuate disparities by altering someone’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment or get a fair trial.

    To end bias, we need to become aware of it. And then we need to do everything within our power to stop it. In ourselves, others, and institutions. The world will be a better place for it.
