Unconscious Bias: Half Day Workshop

Sponsored by Human Resources 
Facilitated by KEPRO
1:00pm-5:00pm: TBD

Everyone has unconscious bias. It is based on an evolutionary survival instinct and means that our brains are predisposed to making quick judgments based on deeply rooted subconscious attitudes. This means that every employee brings this bias with them into the workplace. It shapes the way we think, act and interact with others. However, while we are not always aware of them, our unconscious bias creates barriers relating to inclusion, diversity, performance, engagement and communication. While these deep-set attitudes are difficult to eliminate completely, it is possible to interrupt the process, raise awareness of our bias and discover strategies to move towards conscious action. 

This powerful and thought provoking workshop will enable participants to discover how the mind functions and use powerful demonstrations to illustrate the prevalence of unconscious bias. It will reveal the ways that people commonly make quick assumptions and judgments about others and the impact this can have on the employee and the organization.

At the end of the training, the participants will have a comprehensive understanding of the concept of Unconscious Bias. They will: 
• Fully understand the concept of unconscious bias and how this differs from prejudice and stereotypes 
• Discover their own personal unconscious bias and the impact this can have on those around them 
• Explore why managing unconscious bias is crucial for personal and professional development 
• Gain insight into the ways bias can manifest using powerful case studies 
• Discuss common examples of bias and share personal experiences 
• Develop practical and immediate techniques for challenging personal bias 
• Learn new ways to consciously break habits and beliefs 
• Determine strategies for tackling inappropriate bias in the work environment 
• Discover ways to contribute to a positive and inclusive work culture
