CLIC: Inter-Communication: So you think you're not biased?
New

Thu 21 Jan 2021

Description

Diversity has well been established as a key driver of creative solutions, innovations, and superior business performance. Creating inclusive workplaces to harness the power of diversity takes knowledge, experience, and open-mindedness. However, our biases often influence our decision-making without us even realising. The good news is that biases - towards genders, cultures, ethnicities, sexual orientations and so on - are learnt, and therefore can be unlearnt.

Severe imbalances in genders and ethnicities, non-inclusive and discriminatory practices are some of the challenges most industries and companies suffer when it comes to diversity. We will explore how unconscious bias could be a major underlying cause of such challenges, and what you can do to “unlearn” such unconscious biases, in order to effectively reap the benefits of diversity.

Target audience
  • Staff and students from the School of Technology

Objectives

Through this workshop, you will learn how to identify your own unconscious biases and, in doing so, be able to make better decisions in diverse teams. We will unlock the power of inclusive language, how you can play your part as an ally, and effective ways to extend your privilege to empower others in your team. At the end of this workshop, you will be equipped with a practical toolkit to navigate diverse environments, co-creating spaces of authenticity, respect, and equality.
