UIS Staff L&D: Unconscious Bias and Inclusivity (Workshop)

Thu 28 Nov 2019

Description

Unconscious Bias happens automatically, without conscious control, when our brains make quick judgements or assessments about people and situations. Combatting unconscious bias isn’t about blame. It’s about accountability.

This session will provide an introduction to implicit or unconscious bias and will help you start to understand how our biases influence the decisions we make.

  • University Information Services staff
