As part of the action plan for the Bronze Race Equality Charter Mark award, the university has committed, during the academic year 2016/17, to provide training on unconscious bias.
This interactive workshop, will explore the role unconscious bias plays in limiting our best efforts to create an inclusive organisation. Most importantly, it will also look at how we as individuals and as members of wider teams, can help to reduce the effects of unconscious bias and improve inclusivity at King’s.
Unconscious bias refers to the biases we all have of which we are not in conscious control. 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.
There is a growing body of research which suggests unconscious biases influence key decisions in the workplace and are responsible for some of the enduring inequalities that are evident today.
Prior to attending the workshop, participants will be asked to complete at least one Implicit Association Test (IAT).
After the workshop, participants are asked to sign up to at least one action from our Unconscious bias tool-kit, to reinforce their learning.
To make sure you don't miss out on this interactive session, book today to avoid disappointment as places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
