Whether you read the book “Bad Blood” or watched the new movie series, “The Dropout,” you are most likely familiar with the story of Elizabeth Holmes, the former biotech entrepreneur who was convicted of defrauding investors who believed her claims about her groundbreaking technology. 

So, what does Elizabeth Holmes have to do with investigations? It is a great example of how bias can manifest and potentially impact judgment and decision-making skills that are so critical to the investigation process.  

Join Jill Rorschach, President and Shareholder at Employment Practices Solutions, Inc. and Jessica Caspe, Director of Training and DEI Initiatives, as they discuss the Elizabeth Holmes Effect and understanding biases in investigations. During this session they discuss:  

  • The main types of bias and how it manifests in investigations 
  • Ways to mitigate the impact of such biases
