Unconscious Bias: Manchester


Most organisations know that Unconscious Bias plays a vital role in enabling them to embrace diversity & inclusion and cultivate effective leadership. But often there is a disconnect between the ‘knowing’ and effectively ‘doing’!

If your organisation wants to explore how Unconscious Bias (personal and organisational) influences decision making processes around gender diversity, talent development and recruitment & selection, then our free to attend event is for you.

A half-day event

On Wednesday 28th February 2018 we will be showcasing our Unconscious Bias training and learning development programme in Manchester.

In a dynamic 2 ½ hour ‘taster’ session, delegates will experience how we deliver highly engaging, immersive learning experiences that blend drama, brain science and technology to bring Unconscious Bias to life and evoke feelings, which open people to new ways of thinking and behaving.

It’s a highly interactive, powerful way to explore behaviours, one that’s going to be mainly of interest to Human Resources, Equality & Diversity and Learning & Development professionals.

Here’s what delegates who attended our most recent session said about it:

“Good course content, which enabled participation.”

“Excellent, interactive session, enjoyed – thank you.”

“Great to see how the acting and videos were so powerful.”

“Enjoyed the style, interaction & involvement.”

Programme

The event will cover a wide range of material, including:

  • Unconscious Bias – raising awareness and understanding of this powerful natural process and its implications
  • Tools of the trade – introducing a selection of experiential, drama-based training tools and techniques
  • User feedback – sharing evaluation results, client and user perspectives on this alternative approach to training and learning development

Outcomes

  • Greater understanding and awareness of Unconscious Bias;
  • Appreciation of the potential adverse impact Unconscious Bias has on individuals and organisations;
