Description of the original webinar. :
Unconscious Bias- webinar
This webinar is for anyone working with careers service clients or recruiting/selecting staff. The webinar will:
• Explore the brain’s processing short cuts

It will also cover techniques for becoming aware of our unconscious biases and overcoming them.
The webinar will include practical demonstrations of unconscious bias in action and provide a theoretical context.
For those interested in learning more about the topic, links to further resources will be provided.
