Unconcious Bias Training - CANCELLED

Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Excellence Centre
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

This training is designed to raise awareness on a very difficult topic: our preferences and our bias. The premise of this training is that unless we explore the nature of relationships, perceptions and prejudices we will never make sufficient progress to create truly diverse and inclusive organisations. It is based on the fact that we are all biased. That is everyone, without exception.

This training is intended to enable us to improve the quality of our decision making, ensuring that we eliminate irrelevant factors that may influence our conclusions.

The very nature of unconscious bias means that it can have a negative effect on particular groups of people, even when all those involved genuinely believe that they are being fair and transparent in their decision-making.

The training is in three parts.

Part One: Understanding Unconscious Bias

Part one provides an overview of unconscious bias in terms of how it affects you and others. It will provide information on how to determine your own biases. It will cover a number of experiments which help illustrate the way our perceptions filter information and how this impacts on what we see and hear, what we fail to see and hear, and the judgements we make. Becoming more aware of how our brains are wired can help us understand that 'trusting our instincts' can lead to poor decision-making. Once we acknowledge our bias, we can consciously take action to reduce its influence.

Part Two: Bias at Work

Part two covers bias at work through a series of drama scenarios. Each scenario will be followed by an analysis of the impact on unconscious bias. The scenarios will help you understand how unconscious bias can impact on the workplace and on working relationships.

Part Three: Addressing Bias

Part three provides guidance on how to address bias in specific situations including recruitment, performance reviews/ appraisals, induction of new team members and mentoring. This part also explores practical measures to help eliminate the impact of bias in these situations within our own organisation.
