About the event

There is now a large body of research conducted at, amongst others, Harvard, Yale and MIT that show us that unconscious and hidden bias or implicit associations explain a great deal of our patterns of behaviour around diversity. Unconscious biases don’t just affect the decisions that we make, they also affect how we communicate with people every day.

This session defines unconscious bias, investigates why it is inherent in us all and how we can recognise and deal with it at work. The session takes a practical approach through everyday examples, and explores the psychology behind unconscious bias.

Session content includes:

  • Concept of unconscious bias
  • Relationship between implicit association, unconscious bias, stereotypes and attitudes
  • Recognising the impact of unconscious bias
  • Reducing the effects of unconscious bias as individuals and within the organisation.
