He hosts a radio show with over 25,000 listeners on Sundays on L.A. Talk Radio, where he continues to provide domestic terrorism safety tips.

Topics

Jim will speak on the impact of domestic terrorism in the workplace and unconscious bias, both areas of concern for California employers.

Domestic terrorism has become more prevalent than we ever expected. Or has it? Jim has been an outspoken patriot regarding domestic terrorism and has spoken in front of political groups, business associations, community based organizations, schools, and businesses. He has conducted active shooter training for thousands of individuals both in and out of the workplace. Did you know approximately 49 percent of all active shooters involve the workplace? Jim will provide active shooter safety tips not only for the workplace but also for places outside of work, including movie theaters, concerts, and restaurants.

Unconscious bias is far more common than conscious prejudice and often conflicts with one’s conscious values. It is important to note that biases, conscious or unconscious, are not limited to ethnic background or race. Though racial bias and discrimination are well documented, it also applies to any social group. This includes age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability, and weight. Jim will discuss these timely issues and more.
