Overcoming unconscious bias in workplaces and teams.
Is unconscious bias hindering diversity and inclusion in your workplace?
Subtle and not-so-subtle biases can lead to errors in perception, judgment and decisions, hindering our efforts to engage or include others. They can also blind us to the value that people from various cultures, backgrounds, genders and ages can bring to workplaces. This can limit opportunities for talented people who don’t fit prevailing norms and reduce diversity of thinking in workgroups and teams.
The Diversity and Inclusion programme draws on the latest neuroscience to examine how unconscious bias works in the brain, challenging leaders or others to become more aware of hidden biases and how to overcome them. Thought-provoking activities illustrate how people unwittingly build barriers that exclude others and how to create more conscious and collaborative connections.
