How can we get free from unconscious bias?
Wed 16 November 2016, 10:00 – 12:00 GMT
Despite our best efforts – do we react and act in a biased way? In this lively seminar we will explore the concept of unconscious bias as well as our own experience of this phenomenon. We will also consider how we can do our best to ensure that our judgments are as rational and free of bias as possible.
This workshop supports participants to reflect on the unconscious biases that we all hold and the assumptions we sometimes make. It explores how these may impact on our interactions and decision-making processes, and strategies for recognising and counteracting bias in the workplace. This session is relevant for all staff, and may be of particular interest to managers.
In this session you will learn
How and why we make choices/decisions about people we meet
The role of unconscious bias and cultural influence in how we make judgements and decisions more widely
Where and how bias impacts on the workplace
Recognising and counteracting bias
