Event description

Description

Unconscious bias can be defined as the act of unintentionally viewing certain groups of people in a more favourable light: usually those most like ourselves.

It is natural, pervasive… and potentially highly damaging to a selection process. It can also result in a legal challenge to your selection process.

Beginning with some pre-course tests, designed to identify your own unconscious biases, this session will cover a range of methods to identify when unconscious bias is occurring and how to mitigate this on an individual and organisational level.



By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand a range of methods to detect unconscious bias in individuals (micro level) and within organisations (macro level)
  • Have a clearer understanding of their own personal unconscious biases
  • Understand and have a strategy for applying ways to minimise unconscious bias within their own workplace
