Unconscious Bias Workshop

*Available Online

What is unconscious bias?

 

It is underlying stereotypes and attitudes that people unconsciously attribute to another person or a group of people which affects how they understand or engage with that person or group. 

Every one of us has a degree of unconscious bias and it’s nothing to be ashamed of, however, it is important to learn more about it and recognise how it affects the way you work and interact with people.

We know that unconscious bias isn’t a tick box exercise that can be resolved in just one session but we hope this workshop can help staff become more aware of their unconscious bias and start working towards tackling it.
