    Chamber Training Academy
    An insight into Unconscious Bias Wiseup2

    Who is it by:  Martin Smith of Martin Smith Learning and Development Ltd. A highly experienced management trainer and executive coach.

    Course details:  

    This is a workshop to get you thinking!

    Unconscious biases, also known as implicit biases, are the underlying attitudes and stereotypes that people unconsciously attribute to another person or group of people that affect how they understand and engage with a person or group.

    In this workshop we’ll explore this fascinating and sometimes uncomfortable subject to look at where unconscious bias might be impacting you and your relationships with customers, clients, colleagues.

    For example; If you’re hiring based on ‘gut feeling,’ you’re likely hiring on the basis of unconscious bias. The best way to prevent yourself from succumbing to these unconscious biases is to become aware of them and take action to prevent them when recruiting, hiring and retaining employees. Therefore, we’ll explore a number of examples of unconscious bias and look at ways that you can avoid them in the workplace.

    Who is it for:  Anyone involved with hiring and managing people and making decisions in any industry and from any profession.

    What will I get out of it? An understanding of what unconscious bias is and some practical ways to tackle unconscious bias in your workplace.

        Chamber Event 
        Virtual Chamber Hub: FREE monthly networking event 

        Join fellow members for our popular Chamber Hub virtual networking session. You bring the refreshments we provide the contacts!

        This is a relaxed and informal networking session where you can meet like-minded businesses and build on your connections.

        Introduce yourself with a short pitch and then you will be divided into smaller groups for some more in depth conversations. Share your details using the chat function and these will be shared with attendees after the event.

        We look forward to seeing you there!

        Date: Friday 17th December
        Time: 12:30pm - 2:00pm
