    The Women in Business Committee presents a webinar on
    “Cultivating a Bias-Free Workplace”

    Join the AmCham Abu Dhabi’s Women in Business Committee for an exciting webinar on “Cultivating a Bias-Free Workplace”.

    Cultivating a Bias-Free Workplace - Reducing Your Personal Bias.
    Everyone has some form of bias. We have patterns of thinking that make it easier to process the surge of information we are flooded with each day and these patterns lead to biases. Bias can get in the way of company and individual success, so we all need to uncover our personal biases and make conscious efforts to reduce them. As leaders in business, and in order to succeed in the changing global marketplace, we must fully leverage the skills and attributes of a diverse team, by retaining the right skills, strongest talent, and brightest minds all by creating and fostering an environment that embraces diversity and inclusion.

    Key Takeaways:
    Join Molly G. Brown, CMA, CPA as she unveils some of the most important facets of a biased-free workplace:

    • Uncover 10 Bias Patterns
    • Bias in the Workplace
    • Workplace Bias Triggers
    • Biases that Thrive in Accounting
    • Reducing Your Personal Bias

    This comprehensive and fast paced session will cover:

    Bahrain Tax Landscape Update - Economic Substance Requirements (“ESR”), what to expect for exchange of information regimes FATCA & CRS going forward, the EU's Mandatory Disclosure Regime ("MDR", otherwise known as DAC6) and the future of automatic exchange of information requirements for digital platform operators (“DAC7”), as well as the latest on impact of OECD Pillar II proposals for financial services in Bahrain;

    Tax Managed Services for Financial Services - given the rise in complexity in tax matters and increased reporting in the region, PwC's response is the 'managed services' solution to simplify tax obligations and drive efficiencies; and

    Tax Technology & Digital - the dynamic landscape of tax in the Middle East is putting increased pressure on organisations to remain efficient and compliant. As a result, many businesses are turning to technology to support and manage their operations. We will be taking a closer look at what that means in Bahrain and how you can drive efficiencies and mitigate risk through digitisation.
