Unconscious Bias Training

This highly interactive and practical training programme explores individual and cultural bias that impact on our working relationships. Allowing people, in a safe environment to both understand unconscious bias and develop personal strategies to ensure personal biases are effectively managed.

Did you know that for every 2.5 inches in height, a man’s income increases by £1,600?

Nobody is consciously looking to promote tall men but the impact of unconscious bias can lead to us make decisions which aren’t always rational or to treat different people in different ways without realising it.

It looks at a range of ways in which unconscious bias can affect how you do things, including how you respond to tenant complaints, who you engage with, staff culture, and your recruitment practices.

Tai Pawb’s Unconscious Bias Training has been specifically developed for the housing sector. It will explore what unconscious bias is, the mechanics of bias, and how it typically infiltrates and affects the workplace. It will allow participants to identify methods for positively managing personal, team and organisational biases for improved and effective workplace decision making. The trainer will work with delegates to ensure they understand unconscious bias, and develop strategies to effectively manage personal biases.

Our half day course helps organisations to:

  • Understand what unconscious bias is
  • Consider where unconscious bias comes from
  • Think about our own unconscious bias
  • Discuss where this matters in our organisation
  • Identify how to address it and practical actions to take away
