Unconscious Bias - Glasgow

Unconscious Bias - Glasgow

Thursday, 5 March 2020 - 10:30am to 12:30pm
About: 

Workshop Outline

We all have bias but do we realise the impact it has on our decision making at work?

At best bias inhibits top quality decisions, and at worst it results in unfairness and potential discrimination. Through case studies, practical examples and action planning, this is an ideal workshop to help delegates understand their own unconscious biases and the impact that these biases may have at work.

We also cover institutionalised or systemic bias and ways to make changes that increase opportunities for all. The course is aimed at organisations that want to improve the quality of all employment related decisions, remove barriers and create an inclusive culture.

What You Will Learn

The science behind unconscious bias

The relationship between unconscious bias and discrimination

How you can manage your own unconscious bias

Examples of bias

The impact of bias at work

Identifying bias in others

This 2 hour workshop costs £99 + VAT for members or £125 + VAT for non-members. All members are entitled to one free place at 10 workshops per year.
