Unconscious Bias Seminar
Wed 23 March 2016, 14:30 – 16:00 GMT
In response to feedback and requests the Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (NMS) has arranged a session on Unconscious Bias which is available for all students across the Faculty.
What is Unconscious Bias?
Unconscious Bias refers to biases we have that we are not in conscious control of. These biases occur automatically, triggered by our brain making quick judgments and assessments of people and situations based on our background, cultural environment and our experiences.
The aim of the seminar is to provide participants with an understanding of the nature of Unconscious Bias and how it impacts on individual and group attitudes, behaviours and decision-making processes.
