Despite our best efforts, do we act and react in a biased way? This workshop supports participants to reflect on the unconscious biases that we all hold and the assumptions we sometimes make. In this workshop we will explore the concept of unconscious bias, how the brain works, what this means in organisations and what can be done to mitigate unconscious bias in decision-making processes. This session is relevant for all staff and genders.
This is an interactive webinar that includes activities to encourage reflection on the following subjects:
- How and why we make choices/decisions about people we meet
- Defining and identifying unconscious bias
- Understanding the impacts of unconscious bias
- Identifying steps to mitigate unconscious bias in decision making
