Event description

Description

About the event: Unconscious bias refers to a bias that we are unaware of, and which happens outside of our control. It is a bias that happens automatically and is triggered by our brain making quick judgments and assessments of people and situations, influenced by our background, cultural environment and personal experiences (ECU: 2013 Unconscious bias in higher education). Recognising that we all have these biases is the first step, but what next?

With a keynote address from Dr. Gurnam Singh, Principal Lecturer in Social Work, Coventry University and Visiting Professor of Social Work at the University of Chester ‘Disrupting Othering: From Unconscious Bias to unconscious non-bias.’, as well as workshops, debates and discussion, this interactive day aims to give students, academics from all disciplines, those with an interest in equality and diversity and anyone who wants to reflect on their own biases an opportunity to consider the journey from Unconscious Bias to unconscious non-bias and all the steps in between.

Who is it for: Students and academics from all disciplines, those with an interest in equality and diversity and anyone who wants to reflect on their own biases

What you will gain from attending: An opportunity to consider the journey from Unconscious Bias to unconscious non-bias and all the steps in between.
