About this Event

Who are brap?

brap www.brap.org.uk is a charity transforming the way we think and do equality. We’ve been working on the cutting edge of practice for over 20 years. Our work connects us to leaders, practitioners and communities across a range of areas, from social impact organisations to global commercial businesses, from elected representatives to residents in some of our most disadvantaged neighbourhoods.

Our work spans research, evaluation, policy, organisational and professional development, community development, and coaching, campaigning and connecting people to opportunities to re-design our society so that it is more equitable, inclusive and authentic.

Over the last few months we have been working with www.walsallforall.co.uk delivering a range of interventions designed to improve how people live, work and socialise together. This is one of 16 workshops we re delivering in the borough. For more information about this session and other work we are doing in Walsall please contact CherylG@brap.org.uk or call 0121 272 8453

What does the session cover?

Unconscious bias is a developing area of equality and diversity training and brap has been working in this area for over 6 years.

This workshop is designed to be engaging and thought-provoking. It offers you the opportunity to have discussion and debate that helps your understanding of bias. We encourage you to engage critically and honestly in self-reflection, we support you to deepen your awareness and dialogue on contentious issues and where possible, we will help you to have more courageous conversations about what really matters.

The session covers the following:

1. What is bias and how does it show up in our society?

2. What impact does bias have?

3. Different kinds of bias and how to spot them

4. Strategies to de-bias.
