Unconscious Bias in the Workplace
Whether we are aware we are doing it or not, we make judgements about people we meet all the time. We are all biased and we can't help it.
We might be influenced by a persons gender, race, age, size, height or disability and we form opinions on their character, their behaviours and their capability, based on these factors.
But why do we form these snap judgements about people? They are drawn from our own personal life experiences, our cultural background and also what other people (friends, family, the media) tell us about particular groups of people.
The result? We misjudge people, we sometimes then treat them unfairly and discriminate against them - whether subconsciously or otherwise. In a workplace, this can have very negative implications.
This one day course raises awareness of our own unconscious bias, the implications of ignoring it and helps us to form the habit of checking and correcting it before we discriminate.
Who is it for?
This course is for everyone - we all meet and form opinions about people on a daily basis - so anyone who works with others would benefit from this workshop. It is particularly suitable for anyone involved in HR - recruitment, talent management, employee relations etc.
