As part of our Diversity & Inclusion series, Aftathought Training Consultants will bring our unconscious biases or behavior to our consciousness.
As humans, we all have biases that we may not be conscious of. When we just ‘click’ with one person, but there’s ‘something’ about another that means we can’t take to them.
But what if this bias means we unconsciously discriminate against some people, and the result is that they are excluded, given fewer opportunities, or treated less fairly?
In this session we will explore different types of unconscious bias, including how we can recognize them in ourselves and examine how, if left unchecked, they can allow us to react to others in ways that we may not even be aware of.
We will reflect on how to manage our own biases to keep ourselves – and others safe.
