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.Date: Tuesday 19th January
